Ingredients
  1. 20 cups of chopped onions (roughly 8-10 onions)
  2. 1/2 cup butter
  3. 1 1/2 tsp salt (canning salt if you plan on canning this)
  4. 2 1/4 cups Balsamic Vinegar (I use organic)
  5. 3 1/2 - 4 cups brown sugar (I use homemade)
Instructions
  1. Chop onions.
  2. Saute' onions in melted butter and caramelize them cooking them appx. 1 hour and 15 min.
  3. Add vinegar and brown sugar.
  4. Return to boil and cook for an additional 15-20 min until thickened.
Notes
  1. Store this in your refrigerator, freezer, or you may choose to water bath or pressure can it.
Due to the high amount of vinegar and sugar, this recipe can be water bath canned
TO WATER BATH CAN
  1. 1/4" headspace
  2. Process: 10min. Turn off heat and allow to sit in canner an additional 5 min.
  3. Remove from canner.
  4. Makes appx 12 half pints OR 6 pint jars.
  5. Half pints and Pints have the same processing time.
  6. DISCLAIMER: The USDA has not conducted any studies to determine if home canning butter is safe. Please use your own judgement to determine if this process is right for your family.
  7. I canned this recipe, you do NOT have to..... if you do not can or if you do not feel comfortable canning this recipe because it does contain butter you can make it and simply place it in your fridge or freezer. According to the National Center for Food Preservation, "normal salted butter has about 16-17% water, some salt, protein, vitamins and minerals. Some butter-like spreads have varying amounts of water in them. We have no kind of database in the home canning/food processing arena to know what the microbiological concerns would be in a butter stored at room temperature in a sealed jar." http://nchfp.uga.edu/questions/FAQ_canning.html#33
