Red Onion Marmalade (Red Onion Jam) is a salty, sweet, and perfect component to cheese platters, eggs, or sandwiches.


  • 1 large red onion
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1 french baguette
  • large log goat cheese


  1. Slice onion in half length-wise and then thinly slice into half moons.

  2. Heat medium saute pan over medium-high heat and add butter to pan.

  3. When the butter sizzles, add onions, and turn heat down to medium-low.

  4. Cook onions, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes until they are mostly browned.

  5. Sprinkle brown sugar over onions and stir until sugar dissolves (just a minute or two).

  6. Add soy sauce and wine to pan, and cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until liquid has evaporated, about 10-15 minutes.

  7. Taste and season with salt & pepper if necessary.

  8. Serve with baguette slices and goat cheese.


  • Add it to eggs in the morning, spread it on a sandwich for extra flavor or use it as a topping for fish or chicken at dinner time. And for snacks, serve with a goat cheese or cheddar and baguette slices.
