It has already been a week! I hope you had time to bake my macarons! Did you like it? I wanted to share with you this week a recipe that I just love. Let’s see if you will enjoy it as well!
The onion marmalade or “confiture d’oignons” is usually served in France with Foie Gras for Christmas or New Year. Unfortunately my mother in law hates Foie Gras because of all of the different reasons you might now, but she loves my onion marmalade! So do not forget that you can also serve this jam alone on a toast. It is also very delicious!
Usually I take two different evenings one to do all the steps but without waiting that the wine is completely gone and the second evening I finish to reduce the wine and place in the fridge before serving. That’s easier this way.
French Onion Marmalade Recipe
- 600 gr sliced onions 5 cups or 1.32 lb.
- 0.5 dl olive oil 3.5 tablespoons or 1.6 oz.
- 3 dl red wine 1.25 cup or 10 oz.
- 80 gr white sugar 0.4 cup or 2.85 oz.
- Chop onions. Heat olive oil in a casserole dish. Cover and cook onions on low heat until they become translucent about 30 minutes. (Tip: If I want to save time and not stay in my kitchen I also add 3 dl. of water).
- When they are well done, add red wine, white sugar as well as salt and pepper. (Tip: Don’t add the red wine before the onions are translucent as they will not cook anymore afterwards.)
- Leave to cook until no more red wine about 1 hour.
