Red Onion Marmalade

Red Onion Marmalade
Here are red onions from my garden.  What to do with these?  Red Onion Marmalade from Ball's Blue Book Guide to Preserving. Sweet marmalade that has a taste of onion dip, very tasty on a cracker with a dab of cream cheese. To my taste palate, this marmalade is addictive.

Yield: about 5 half-pints
1-1/2 cups thinly sliced, halved, peeled red onions
1/2 cup finely chopped dried cranberries
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 package powdered pectin
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
3 cups bottled unsweetened apple juice
4 cups granulated sugar

Saute onions, cranberries, brown sugar and cider vinegar in a skillet over medium heat, until onions are transparent.  Combine onion mixture, powdered pectin, orange peel and apple juice in a large saucepot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add granulated sugar, stirring until dissolved. Return to a rolling boil. Boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim foam if necessary. Ladle hot marmalade into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace.  Adjust two-piece caps. Process 15 minutes in a boiling-water canner.
