My recipe for Onion Marmalade calls for red wine vinegar which I did not have on hand at the very minute I wanted to make Onion Marmalade so I improvised using one third wine, one third sherry and one third brown vinegar – the gamble paid off. I am thrilled with the end result and think I will always make it this way going forward, well until I don’t have one of the ingredients on hand that is.
6 large onions thinly sliced
1 cup red wine – I used Pinotage
1 cup sherry
1 cup brown spirit vinegar
3 cups brown sugar
3 bay leaves – I used 6 fresh from the garden
5ml black pepper freshly ground
- Place all the ingredients in a pot and bring to the boil.
- Simmer until almost all the liquid has evaporated.
- Once cooled, place in glass bottles and refrigerate.

I’m inspired to give this a go although I was wondering how long it would keep so I know to make enough/not too much. I imagine it preserves well given the ingredients but just curious if you had an idea.
Hi and thanks for stopping by. I have kept this in the fridge for a couple of months (when I make double batches) and it keeps perfectly. If you are wanting to keep it long term, I would suggest using sterilised jars, just in case. Hope to see you back soon again. 🙂
This is really delicious. We do something like this in Italy but we never use it on pizza (we are purists about pizza, no sweet and sour additions… :P). Instead we use it to accompany ripe cheeses like parmigiano and pecorino: super tasty!!
I would love to see how your recipe varies 😉
wow! it looks interesting! i;ll give it a try! 😀
I would love to hear how you enjoy it 🙂
I do love onion marmalade, lovely, lovely.
Hope you enjoy this recipe 🙂
What a nice glaze on onions! What do you use this marmalade? For sandwich? I bet this marmalade is so sweet after caramelize for a long time.
I love onions!
Hi Nami, I use it with cheese and biscuits/crackers on toasted steak sandwiches, it is fabulous with boiled eggs and adds great flavour to gravies and is a super accompaniment with roast meats. Have a great day. 🙂
So simple and looks delicious! Perfect for steak I reckon, or a roast chicken! Yum!
Hi Wholesome Cook, welcome and thanks for stopping by. This is a definite winner with steak and any roast meat. Have a happy day. 🙂
I love onions and the strong onion flavor of this jam or marmalade is just begging me to make it and put it ontop of some delicious buttermilk biscuits or something. I love this recipe and so glad you shared it with us! Thanks
Glad you like the recipe! Enjoy it when you make it. Have a happy day. 🙂
I was just thinking about marmalades, I wonder if this would be a good topping for baked brie???? Hmmm
I think that would be an outstanding idea! Scrumptious! Have a happy day. 🙂
Onion marmalade going on fresh bread and an assortment of cheeses, a glass of chilled wine and a spring afternoon breeze. I’m in, when are you arriving!xx
I am on my way – keep the wine chilled! 🙂 xo
This really sounds delicious, Mandy, and I love how my fellow commenters have given their own serving suggestions. With the holidays fast approaching, a jar of this in the fridge would be invaluable if unexpected guests arrive. Thank you for sharing and have a great day!
I am pleased you like the recipe ChgoJohn! This makes for a lovely gift too if put in a pretty bottle. Have a super day. 🙂
My wife is begging me to make this, I need to. Looks wonderful.
I hope this meets Katherine’s expectations. Have a super day. 🙂
Onion marmalade is one of my favourite pickles, delightful. I don’t know if you are interested but I have set up a sister blog to What We Ate Today called Sweet Pumpkins (sweetpumpkins.com) which is going to be dedicated to meat free cooking. I am not turning my back on meat, just trying to get a little more vegetable variety into our diets. Anyway, it would be great if you would sign up and follow us. Your comments are always greatly received.
Best of luck with the new sister blog. I think it’s a great idea to have a blog dedicated to meatless cooking. Have a super day. 🙂

Super idea to use it on a burger Kay. Think I will try that soon. Have a super day. 🙂
I was about to ask what onion marmalade is used for but then read the comments. Sounds delicious!

Great looking recipe, Mandy. Will add it to our todo list for this weekend and try with some nice homemade bread.
Thanks Simon! Look forward to hearing how you enjoy it. Have a happy day. 🙂
Oh, yum! I would gladly just gobble those up plain. What do you typically eat the onions with?
HI Caroline, we usually snack on these with cheese and biscuits/crackers with toasted steak sandwiches, added to gravy and as an accompaniment with roast meats and Kay mentioned with burgers would be great too. Have a super weekend. 🙂
My goodness, this idea is completely new to me! It sounds and looks delicious!
It is so easy to make too and lasts very long in the fridge too. Thanks for stopping by and have a happy weekend. 🙂
Baked this with pork sausages last night and served with “smashed” potatoes. Turned out great.
Should be fantastic on croissants too!
What a brilliant idea – to have with pork sausages and on croissant! Have a happy day. 🙂
This onion marmalade looks great. Sounds like it will be great on a sandwich!
Hi TastyGalaxy, welcome and thanks for stopping by. have a happy day. 🙂
Oh yum! I love ALL things onion and this is right up my alley. So versatile, and I love how you subbed in the wine, sherry, and brown sugar. Gorgeous combo!
Thanks Mary Anne! Have a super day 🙂
