The onion jam is a mixture of caramelized shallots, apricot jam, balsamic vinegar, and lots of salt and pepper. It's the topping we put on our Chicken with Shallot-Apricot Sauce, sans the chicken. You can certainly use a regular onion rather than shallots.
Along with our sandwiches, we packed some homemade broccoli slaw (recipe coming next week!), a couple of these cookies, and some bottled sodas.
It was a quick, on-the-fly picnic for two that was such a refreshing start to Spring.
Anyone else planning a picnic this weekend? What are you making?
