  1. Heat a medium skillet with over medium heat. Add the onions and cook for about 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until softened. Slowly add cider, letting it cook into the onions before adding more. Do this until all the cider is slowly absorbed and the onions are very soft.

for the Pickled Cranberries

  1. Bring vinegar, water, sugar, and salt in a small saucepan to a boil. Add cranberries and pinch black peppercorns and cook just until cranberries split open and soften. Let cool and transfer to a bowl or mason jar. Refrigerate (up to 1 week) until ready to serve.
