Number of Servings: 12


    2 large sweet onions, chopped (I used Mayans)
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 tsp olive oil (you might need a touch more)
    1 TBS brown sugar
    1+ tsp fresh rosemary, chopped
    crushed red pepper, to taste
    1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    few pinches of salt


Heat oil in large heavy skillet. Add onions and garlic and stir to coat with the oil. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions soften. Reduce heat to medium-low and be careful not to brown the onions. Continue cooking and stirring until onions are very limp and have given up most of their water (roughly 30 minutes). Add a touch more oil if the pan becomes dry. Add brown sugar, rosemary, crushed red pepper and vinegar to skillet and continue cooking and stirring until most vinegar is absorbed and mixture is a deep brown color. Taste and add a few pinches of salt to finish. The finished relish should be very fragrant and the onions should be very soft, yielding very easily to the back of a spoon. Total cooking time should be between 35-45 minutes.

Let cool and serve with burgers, a favorite sandwich, or in any other way you can imagine!
