– Onion Jam –

I found this recipe for onion jam in my complete book of preserves and pickles and converted it for the TM5. It uses prunes and some brown sugar as a sweetener so its not an overly sweet jam. Its delicious served on a cracker with some brie cheese.

Serves:

500g

Preparation Time:

5 minutes

Cooking Time:

35 minutes

Time to table:

1 hour

Number of Ingredients:

10

Equipment:

TM5

Ingredients:

30 ml olive oil (2 tablespoons)

15g butter (1 tablespoon)

500g brown onions

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1 bay leaf

2 tablespoons brown sugar

50g prunes

30ml balsamic vinegar (2 tablespoons)

120ml red wine (1/2 cup)

Salt and pepper to taste

Onion Jam

Preparation:

  • Pull out all of your ingredients and measure out the quantities.
  • Peel your onion, cut it in half and then slice (Yes I know your TM5 can chop it for you but I think it looks prettier sliced! Your TM5 will still save you from cooking it on the stove 🙂 ).
  • Chop up your prunes into small pieces.

Method:

1. Place the butter and oil the bowl and set it for 1 minute, 100° on speed 1. Put on your lid with the measuring cup on.

7. The picture below shows how your onion jam should turn out. Depending on the thickness of your onions and their age you may wish to give it another couple of minutes on Varoma, Reverse Speed on speed 1 in the TM5 with the measuring cup off.

8.  Finally transfer your onion jam into a jar or serving dish and pop it into the fridge to cool if you want to eat it ASAP. If your storing it in a jar in the fridge for a while add 1 teaspoon of olive oil to the mix prior to bottling.
