Everyone in my home simply loves caramelized onions...be it on pizzas, foccacia or in sandwiches or salads. I decided to make them at home, without any sugar and preservatives and didn't expect it to be so simple. What I love about it is that I could season it with any herb of my choice (I love rosemary). Try this flavorful recipe and enjoy the fruits of labor for up to two weeks.


1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
3 large sweet or red onions (cut thin and long)
1 rosemary sprig or any other dry herb of your choice
1/3 cup agave
3/4 cup white wine
Salt to taste


  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil until it simmers and add the onions. Cook over medium heat until golden brown.
  2. Now add the herb by either finely chopping it (if you like it in your jam) or tie it in a bunch with kitchen twine. Dip the tied herbs into the onions and cook over low heat, stirring a few times, until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  3. Pour in the agave and allow it to simmer for about 5 minutes. Now increase the heat to high and cook until all the onions turn a dark golden brown color. Stir occasionally so it doesn't burn at the bottom of the pan.
  4. Add the wine and simmer over low heat, stirring a few times, until the jam is thick.
  5. Remove the twined herb at this point and season the jam with salt.
  6. Allow to cool and pour into a container to store.
