Another Red Onion Bust

Posted by Trott

After the failure of the Quick Red Onion Pickle earlier in the week, it was time to move on to the Red Onion Marmalade. It's still simmering, but I'm not optimistic. What is it with The Joy of Cooking and these red onion condiment recipes with tons of onion and very little liquid? Are they just there, like intentional errors in a map, to trap people who engage in copyright infringement?

I would love to hear from someone who has actually successfully made either of these recipes.

Ah, well. Chutneys are next!

Oh, and Pat Buchanan is a moron.

Thank you.

Update: As if on cue, when I returned from posting and looked at the pot on the stove, the Red Onion Marmalade looked like it was really coming together. I'm convinced now that it will be spectacular. Or at least come out resembling what its name suggests.

Oh, and "Don't Call Me Nigger, Whitey" is an annoying song.

Update #2: As if to warn me against being so optimistic, the universe saw fit to have my hand try to go through my glass of wine rather than merely picking it up. There is wine all over the kitchen and blood all over the bathroom.

Fortunately, the Red Onion Marmalade seems fine.

If it wasn't for Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Ice Cream and some of my coworker Julia's homemade hot fudge, I don't know what I would do. Probably, it would involve being a lot more upset about the gashes in my right hand.
