Ingredients

  • Olive oil
  • 5 cups chopped sweet onions
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper
  • Pinch lemon zest
  • 1 package powdered pectin
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 5 cups sugar

Directions

Drizzle the bottom of a large stock pot with olive oil.

Add onion, garlic, thyme, red pepper, lemon zest and saute over medium heat for about 5 minutes.

Stir in the pectin, white wine, and lemon juice and bring to a full boil.

Properly handled sterilized equipment will keep canned foods in good condition for one year. Making sure hands, equipment and surfaces in your canning area are clean is the first step in canning. Tips: Jars should be made from glass and free of any chips or cracks. Preserving or canning jars are topped with glass, plastic or metal lids that have a rubberlike seal. Two-piece metal lids are most common. To prepare jars before filling: Wash jars with hot, soapy water, rinse them well and arrange them open-side up, without touching, on a tray. To sterilize jars, boil them in a large saucepan, covered with water, for 10 minutes. Jars have to be sterilized only if the food to be preserved will be processed for less than 10 minutes in a boiling-water bath or pressure canner. To sterilize jars, boil them in a large saucepan, covered with water, for 10 minutes. Follow manufacturer's instructions for cleaning and preparing lids and bands. Use tongs or jar lifters to remove hot sterilized jars from the boiling water. Be sure the tongs are sterilized too: Dip the tong ends in boiling water for a few minutes before using them. All items used in the process of making jams, jellies, preserves and pickles must be clean, including any towels and especially your hands. After the jars are prepared, you can preserve the food. It is important to follow any canning and processing instructions included in the recipe and refer to USDA guidelines about the sterilization of canned products.
