redonion jam burger topping

Easy burger topping – red onion jam

With a homemade bun or healthy spelt roll, with tomato ketchup or hummus, pickles or grilled vegetables, tartar or wagyu meat; actually I like it all when it comes to burgers.

The hamburger is a regularly seen dish on Miss Gingerish’ kitchen table. Despite the variation there is one topping which we make all the time and goes with any burger: this red onion jam. Simple, fast and so much better than raw onions on your burger!

Red onion jam

Makes 2 portions

    • 2 medium red onions
    • 1 tsp. of chilli flakes
    • 1 clove
    • ½ cinnamon stick
    • 25 ml of red wine vinegar
    • 1 tbsp. of light brown caster sugar
    • Sunflower oil
  1. Peel the onions and cut them into thin half slices
  2. Lightly crush the clove. Heat the oil in a small saucepan and fry the onion on low heat for 25 minutes, together with the chilli flakes, clove and cinnamon stick. Stir regularly
  3. After 25 minutes add the vinegar and sugar, stir well
  4. Bring to a boil and simmer on low heat for another 10 minutes until the vinegar has evaporated and it’s a coarse jam
  5. Let the jam cool, remove the cinnamon stick and clove. Store the jam in a clean jar, keep it in the fridge

This delicious burger topping even tastes better when you make it up to 1 week ahead. You can add leftover jam to a salad or on a sandwich.
