      I love this jelly! Next time I make this, I will put the onions in the blender or food processor so they don't float to the top. I sauteed some chicken the other night and dumped in a jar of this jelly and simmered for about 20 minutes. Served over rice. Fantastic!

      I make this recipe all the time! It is WONDERFUL!!!!! Funny to see peoples faces when they find out it is red onion jelly..I don't tell them until AFTER they try it. Have not found one person as of yet that does not like this jelly. Great for Christmas gifts given with a roll of ritz crackers.
