Red Onion Jam

Onion Jam

This onion jam is super versatile and delicious, which is why I always like to have a jar in the fridge. It makes for a delightful contrast to a spicy Indian curry, and is a delicious sweet condiment slathered onto a bacon cheese burger. It’s also great to have on hand when you have last-minute guests stop by for a drink and you need some quick canapés. Just slice some cheese onto slices of bread and then top with the onion jam and put the crostini in the toaster oven to melt the cheese. Head over to PBS Food for the full recipe and post.

    Can you tell me how I can “can” this?

    • Marc Matsumoto

      Hi Susan, to be honest I’ve never canned anything before, so you’ll probably want to Google that as improperly canning food can cause botulism, especially in a jam like this with relatively low acidity. Another way to preserve this for longer periods is to keep it in the freezer, which is what I do for most jams.

        Thank you for replying. I’ll do some homework and see what I can find. This looks so good, it would be nice if I can put some up.


I'm Marc, and I want to teach you some basic techniques and give you the confidence and inspiration so that you can cook without recipes too!
