Onion Jam
Total time: 15 to 30 minutes
Difficulty: Easy
Chef's Note

This jam makes a wonderful accompaniment to pâtés, terrines or foie gras. If you want to serve it with game, use 125 g (4 oz.) sugar.

- 2 Tbsp. oil
- 500 g (18 oz.) onions
- 250 ml (1 cup) red wine
- a pinch of salt
- a grinding of fresh pepper
- 75-125 g (3-4 oz.) granulated sugar
  1. Peel and halve the onions; slice into half circles.
  2. In a saucepan, sweat the onions over low heat in 2 Tbsp. oil. They should be translucent without being browned.
  3. Add the red wine, salt and pepper; add the sugar. Continue cooking until the wine has reduced completely.
