Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1 to 1½ cups
A savory jam made from slowly cooking red onions in a sweet and sour base.
  • ¼ cup walnut oil
  • 1 pound red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (about 2 large onions)
  • ¼ cup sherry vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon thyme leaves (or any fresh thyme)
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1 pinch ground white pepper
  1. Heat the oil in a medium-sized saucepan with a heavy bottom. Add the onions and cook over medium heat, stirring, until they are limp, about 5-6 minutes.
  2. Add the vinegar, honey, thyme, salt and pepper. Reduce heat, partially cover the pan and cook for 1 hour. The onions will become very tender.
  3. Serve the marmalade warm or at room temperature.
