Hi, my name is Brian I'm from Trellis of the Heathman Hotel in Kirkland, Washington. And we are here today to show you how to make onion jam. Now we think of making jellies and jams we think of a long drawn out process that takes hours to do and a lot of labor. What I like to do is just show you how to make something really simple. So we've diced red onion. So I put red onion into our pan diced. I'm going to take orange juice, sugar, about a tablespoon of honey. A little bit of orange zest. Now this orange zest is grated very, very fine. We use a microplaner to grate it or you can finely chop it. And to give the jam just a little bit of an extra twist. I'm going to put just a quarter teaspoon of chopped fresh thyme. And that's optional you can leave it out. Finish this with a little bit of salt. We are going to mix it all together. And then we are going to put it on the stove over medium to low heat for about 20 to 25 minutes, watching it so that it will cook down and start to caramelize. And you get a very, very, very, golden, golden finished product. So I put this on the stove. I like to bring it up to a boil. And then once we get it to a rolling boil then turn it down and let it simmer. Again you want to make sure that your sugars are all dissolved, your honey's dissolved. And then you are mixing everything in there. There we go we can turn that down to low. And then here I did this a little earlier but this is our finished product. And you see we have a beautiful golden brown color. All our rich flavors from the honey and the orange. And this is amazing. This can be served with fish. It can be served with cheese. Or like I like to eat it in the morning with a little bit of toast and butter. And we have onion jam.
