Caramelised Onion Jam


Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Yield: 1/2 cup


  • 1 tbsp oil of choice coconut or olive
  • 4 cups of onion, sliced
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 ½ tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • Dash of salt and pepper


  1. In a large frypan, place oil  Once nice and hot, throw the onion slices in and stir around making sure the fat evenly coats the onions.
  2. Lay a heavy medium –sized skillet lid directly on top of the onions for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. This helps speed up the cooking process of the onions.
  3. Stir in ¼ cup of water into the onions, and then cook covered (with a lid that fits now) for 40-45 minutes depending on your stove temp. I like to stir the onions every 8-10 minutes to get beautiful browning. *The last 15 minutes you really gotta keep an eye on them. Caramelizing onions can be tricky.
  4. Mix in the balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, and salt + pepper, and continue cooking for another 10 minutes. The mixture should become thick and gooey, with very little moisture.
  5. Store contents in a tight container in the fridge for up to two weeks. Makes about ½ cup, but this recipe can be easily doubled.
