This is great little condiment. It's very much like regular caramelized onion wearing a Sunday dress. I enjoyed the rosemary flavour and the sweetness. I'm imagining (with mouth watering) a sandwich of thinly sliced steak or roast beef spread with this and a bunch of peppery Arugula on top to balance the sweetness. Nom, nom.

Wow, this onion jam is excellent breezer. We loved it. The jam was quick and easy to make. The sugar from the onions works beautifully with the brown sugar, surprisingly not to sweet. Thank you so much for sharing a new family favorite. Made for Susie's World tour - Pennsylvania Dutch/Amish - Seven Sweets and & Sours Condiment Challenge
