Wylie Dufresne slow-cooks onions with cloves to produce a sweet and fragrant condiment that’s great with grilled steak, chicken or pork.

  1. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. 3 yellow onions (2 pounds), thinly sliced crosswise
  3. 5 whole cloves
  4. Kosher salt
  1. In a large, shallow pot, melt the butter. Add the onion slices and cloves and season with salt. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until the onions are very soft but not browned, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Add water by the tablespoon if the onions get too dry before they’re soft. Discard the cloves.
Make Ahead The compote can be refrigerated for up to 1 week.
