Apple and Onion Marmalade

Apple and Onion Marmalade


2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 1/2 cups onions, julienned (about 2 large or 4 small onions)

12 oz. porter or another dark beer

½ cup water

3 Tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp salt

1 tsp black pepper

3 apples, Honey Crisp or Gala, medium diced

1/4 cup calvados or apple cider



Heat the oil in a medium sauce pot.  Add onions and cook until caramelized, about 3 minutes.  Deglaze with beer, and then add water, maple syrup, salt and pepper.  Cook over medium low heat until the liquid has reduced by three-fourths, about 35 minutes.  Add apples and calvados and cook for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until reduced.  Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper..
