A recipe for Shallot Jam

jar and glass off shallot jam

This jam is delicious on everything! Add it to a grilled cheese sandwich or any kind of sandwich, or a rustic pizza with potatoes and rosemary.




  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • one pound shallots, peeled and sliced very thin
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup dark beer (we used a non-alcoholic beer)
  • 1/4 cup white sugar or brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins


1. In a medium saucepan, warm the olive oil and saute the shallots over medium heat with a pinch of salt and pepper, stirring frequently, until the shallots are soft and wilted. This will take about 10 minutes.
2. Add the beer, sugar, honey, vinegar, and raisins and continue cooking, stirring frequently, until the shallots begin to caramelize.  Continue stirring just enough to keep them from burning. If the mixture seems to be too dry, add a small splash of water toward the end of cooking. You want it to be a little juice and not at all dry.
3. Transfer to a jar and refrigerate.
