  • 1 kg of onions;
  • 500 ml white wine;
  • 50 ml balsamic vinegar;
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar;
  • spices, vegetable oil, salt — to taste.

Onion you need to peel and slice thin half-rings. Can be used not only onions but also red.

Take the saucepan with a thick bottom. Put on a slow fire. Heat oil in it. Put the onion and saute until clear. Add the spices. You can choose those that you like. For example, thyme, black pepper, a little chopped thyme.

When the onions become soft and transparent, turn on the big fire. Add the wine and sugar. Mix well and allow the alcohol to evaporate. The jam will start to thicken and darken.
