Grilled Vidalia Ale Dip
Lucy Saunders
prep time : Less than 30 minutes
recipe type: snacks and dips
ingredients: 2 large Vidalia onions
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup barleywine or strong dark ale
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon hot curry powder
1 tablespoon Lyle's Golden Syrup or dark pure cane syrup
8 oz. cream cheese
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Several splashes of hot pepper sauce

Brush the sliced onions with olive oil and grill 2 minutes, turning several times to obtain crosshatch grill marks. Simmer the ale, pepper, salt, curry and syrup in a skillet. Chop the grilled onions into coarse dice, and add to simmering ale mixture. Cook over medium low heat, until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. While onions cool, whip cream cheese, Worcestershire and hot sauce then fold in the cooled onions. Chill and serve with pumpernickel bread rounds or rye chips.
