Posted by CookinMom at anonymous - May 3, 2001
2 ounces bacon grease
1/4 pound red onion, finely diced
2 cups water
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
Using the insides of the red onion, finely dice. Place the bacon grease in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and saut? until the onions start to blacken.
While the onions are caramelizing, place the water, honey and red wine vinegar in a mixing bowl. Using a wire whisk, mix the ingredients well. Add the cornstarch and whisk well.
After the onions have caramelized, add the Dijon mustard to the onions and stir together with a rubber spatula. Add the water mix to the mustard mix. Continue stirring until mix thickens and comes to a boil. Remove from heat and store in refrigerator until needed.
NOTE: To reheat use a double boiler.
