We love a good homemade jam. Although we can find delicious jams at the supermarket, nothing beats a good homemade jam.
In this week's recipe, we decided to share a delicious red onion jam inspired by the Italian American Cookbook.
Although very simple, this jam has a complex flavor that is sweet, sour, and savory all at once, with a textural twist from the seeds and a light citrusy flavor from the lemons. It's the perfect accompaniment to crackers and cheese.
