My aunt made this every year, now I make it and my daughter does too. Everyone loves it on hot dogs, meatloaf and even scrambled eggs. I even caught my mother eating a spoonful just because!—Pat Dazis, Charlotte, North Carolina

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 16 cups chopped red onion (about 10 medium)
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh tarragon or 2 teaspoons dried tarragon
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Directions

  1. In a Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions, tarragon, thyme, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 30-35 minutes or until liquid is evaporated, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add blueberries, honey, vinegar and lemon juice; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 50-55 minutes or until mixture is thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
  3. Carefully ladle hot mixture into six hot half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace, if necessary, by adding hot mixture. Wipe rims. Center lids on jars; screw on bands until fingertip tight.
