Red Onion Marmalade. This could be used on pork or chicken and... rock out a delicious dinner. Slather this on toast, top with bacon and maybe toss on a tomato. Yum! It really only took about an hour from start to finish. This is one of the pantry items to save for when I am craving something a little different.
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced, halved, peeled red onions
1/2 cup finely chopped dried cranberries
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 package powdered pectin
3 cups unsweetened apple juice
4 cups granulated sugar
Saute onions, cranberries, brown sugar and red wine vinegar in a pan over medium heat, until onions are tender. Mix this mixture with powdered pectin, and apple juice in a huge pot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add sugar, stirring until dissolved. Return to a rolling boil. Boil hard one minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim foam if necessary. Ladle hot marmalade into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Place on lid and rings and process for 15 minutes in a water bath.
I first came across the recipe while reading a blog called Chicken In The Road. Suzanne McMinn has lots of great ideas and recipes.
