1Preheat oven to 425°F. In a small saucepot, cook the onion and oil over medium heat 5 minutes or until the onion is tender and starting to brown, stirring occasionally. Add the sugar, vinegar, 1 tablespoon Barbeque Seasoning and 1 cup water. Increase heat to medium-high and cook 10 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove the saucepot from heat and let cool.
