- 1 Tbs. vegetable or canola oil
1 large yellow onion, cut into medium dice
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
One 12-oz. bag fresh or thawed frozen cranberries, rinsed and picked over (3-1/2 cups)
1 cup granulated sugar
- In a 10-inch straight-sided sauté pan or skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions, a pinch of salt, and a grind or two of pepper. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are golden-brown and very soft, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the lid, increase the heat to medium high, and cook the onions, stirring often, until deep caramel-brown, an additional 2 to 3 minutes.
- Add the cranberries, sugar, a pinch of salt, and 1/2 cup water and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.
- Simmer for 2-3 minutes, then cover, turn off the heat, and let cool to room temperature.
Makes 2 1/2-3 cups.
