Oh, how this has become a favorite of mine. I'll try to see if I can find the connection, confit de l'onion. I have a friend who cans, and she brought me one a couple of years ago. We fell in love with the stuff. The recipe is different, but similar, onions more finely sliced/chopped, and canned. More spices, less sugar. Well, that jar lead to more. I've told her I'll come and peel onions with her, if she'll just keep me supplied. I asked her for a jar for my parents' food package I send every year, and she complied. Mom says she puts it on hot dogs, of all things.

The most fun was that a friend visiting from France always brings me some goodies. She brought me a jar of confit de l'onion commercially produced in France (not knowing that I'm in love with this other friends' version), so I called and we had a confit de l'onion taste test. My friends' version won, hands down. It was great fun.

This is great topping for steaks and on burgers.

Another interesting recipe:

Bacon Jam from King Arthur Flour

Quote:
  • 1 1/2 pounds bacon
  • 2 medium onions, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup boiled cider
  • 3/4 cup strong brewed coffee
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • salt and pepper to taste
I don't know what the world is coming to, a manufacturer publishing recipes that don't use any of their products.

Bump

Thought I'd pop this recipe up. Last week at an event we attended, a chef served cold onion jam made with maple syrup with slices of hot barbecued brisket and blackberry barbecue sauce It was delicious! I have a couple of softball sized onions from the farmers market, so I'm going to give it a try.

Does anyone else do this, or have an interesting variation?

jam, onion, recipe

Onion Jam Here is a nice condiment to make up when you have the urge to cook and it isn't time to eat. You can cool and store this in your fridge for a few days. I love it with a roast beef and cheddar on a bun, or with sausage, cheese and crackers, etc. You can use it just about anywhere you want that sweet and salty thing going on. 1 tblsp Olive Oil 1 lb onions, sliced thin. 1/2 tsp thyme 3 tblsp brown sugar 1 tblsp balsamic vinegar pinch of salt(optional) Fry the onions on med for about half an hour, stirring occasionally to make sure you aren't burning on the bottom. Add tyme and sugar and continue to cook down for another 5 or 10 minutes. Then, add vinegar and some water about half way up to the top of the onions(1/2 cup approx). Reduce the liquid until you get a nice thick syrup. Check it and decide if you want a bit of salt. I usually add a couple of shakes. Cool and pack in a glass jar and refrigerate. Enjoy! 3 stars 1 reviews
