Shallot Jam

Shallot Jam

1 T. olive oil

5 medium shallots, peeled and sliced thin

1/2 C. chicken broth

1/4 C. balsamic vinegar

2 heaping T. apricot jam or preserves

salt and pepper


Heat 1 T. of olive oil in a medium to large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the shallots, season with salt and pepper, and cook for about 5 minutes, until they begin to get soft and the bottom of the pan begins to brown. Add the 1/2 C. chicken broth to the shallots, scraping the brown bits off the bottom of the pan while the broth reduces. Add the balsamic vinegar, reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook for about 5 more minutes. Add the apricot jam and stir to combine. The sauce will thicken but should still be easily stirred.
