Balsamic Onion Marmalade by the Spoonfull

I am so glad food trucks are all the rage right now and a few cookbooks highlight some of the best.  Wishing the Chef Shack would share their crack Indian-spiced donuts recipe, but that will never happen.  I made Thomas's Balsamic Onion Marmalade from Food Trucks cookbook and it was amazing! We slathered it on pork roast sandwiches, turkey burgers, etc.  Make some for yourself or share to make fast friends.  

Thomas's Balsamic Onion Marmalade
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
4 yellow onions, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons brown sugar
zest of 1/2 orange
2/3 cup balsamic vinegar

Heat oil over medium heat in large skillet.  Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are soft and caramelized  about 20 minutes.  Add the cloves, salt, and pepper, stirring to coat.  Reduce heat to medium-low and add the brown sugar and orange zest. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onions start to shrivel.  Add the vinegar, reduce heat to low and cook for 1 1/2 hours, stirring frequently.  Adjust seasoning if needed and serve warm or room temperature
