Paleo Jalapeno Cheesy Crackers & Onion Jam -

Onion Jam

  • Author:


  • 12 large onion(s)
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • (optional)
  • 12 Tbsp vinegar (I tried balsamic and apple cider vinegar, and both were fantastic)


  1. Slice onion in ¼ inch width or smaller, then chop into 2-inch lengths.
  2. In a saucepan combine coconut oil and onion.
  3. Cook on the lowest setting, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft. I had mine covered and cooked for 4-5 hours until they were soft and caramelized – dark and sweet (like me! Haha). I could have cooked them even longer to let the onion soften even more, but they were nice and sweet and I wanted them to maintain a little structure.
  4. Add vinegar and continue to cook until vinegar is soaked up.
  5. Serve with crackers or over meat, hot or cold.


***There are other methods that are faster at higher temperatures, but because I wanted the onions to break down and caramelize on their own this is the method I chose. Let me know what you think.
