Foodie Fridays: Red Onion Marmalade

Posted on by Ashley Fruno

This exotic “marmalade” is great spread on sandwiches and veggie burgers. If you’re feeling adventurous, try tossing it with pasta and veggies or spreading it on pizza.

4 red onions, cut lengthwise into thin crescents
1 cup red wine
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
Juice of 1 orange
1/2 tsp. orange zest (optional)
1/2 cup fresh cranberries or 1Tbsp. dried cranberries
2 tsp. minced fresh ginger
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

  • In a large sauté pan, combine all ingredients. 
  • Cover and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes.
  • Remove cover and cook until all liquid evaporates, stirring occasionally. 
  • Turn the heat down to low and continue to cook, stirring often, until caramelized, about 15 to 20 minutes. 
  • Let cool to room temperature. Serve immediately or refrigerate for later use.

Makes 2 1/2 cups
