Sticky, Sweet and Saucy....Better-than-Ketchup Onion Marmalade!

Who does not like a nice juicy burger with all the gourmet fixings, for a weeknight dinner!? Who out there likes their burgers with just some wilted lettuce and a sorry slice of tomato? No Sir, that's NO WAY to eat a burger!

A perfectly cooked burger (in this case, it was a delicious Jalapeno Cumin Turkey Burger!) must be serenaded with all the fancy fixings you can gather. And making them at home, with ingredients from your pantry only makes it that much more special!

So, today we whipped up a sticky delicious Rosemary Onion Marmalade for our burgers! So simple to make and it's amazingly caramelized flavor will jazz up any burger like it's on crack! You won't regret slathering your bun with this goodness. You can send us thank you fan mail after you have licked your fingers clean!
 Rosemary Onion Marmalade
3 Large white onions, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons of olive oil
3 teaspoons of chopped fresh Rosemary
1/4 cup of white sugar
1/4 cup of light brown sugar
1 cup of good Red wine (any kind you like to drink!)
salt to taste

Easy peasy! Throw the sliced onions into a wide pan with the olive oil and Rosemary and let them cook until translucent.
Then add the salt and white sugar and continue to cook the onions until they get some color on them
Once lightly caramelized, add the brown sugar and keep cooking until the onions get a darker caramelize on them.
Finally, add the Red wine, reduce the heat and let the onions and wine marry and make love!

This whole process takes about 20-25 minutes. Be patient and you shall be rewarded! The wine will reduce and thicken and the resulting product will be the most amazing gooey spreadable heaven!
It's great on a burger or even with some roasted chicken! Or throw it in some pasta or spread over crackers topped with tangy goat or blue cheese for a delicious appetizer!
