20 Minute Onion Jam

This onion jam is simple to make and can be made while the rest of the meal is being prepared and cooked.

While the recipe calls for red onion, I usually just use the brown onions from the pantry and it tastes just as good. You could also vary the type of vinegar you use. I generally don’t measure the sauce or vinegar, so taste and adjust the sauce quantities to your liking.
