How do I make the sweet, pink caramelized onions I've been seeing on expensive burgers lately?

Fancy, expensive burgers seem to be in abundance lately. Great but I'd like to recreate some at home.
My favorites have been big, dark burgers on oatmeal buns with bacon, blue/goat cheese / wasabi-ish mayo zing and -- most importantly -- caramelized onion jelly, onion jam or onion marmalade. I'm not sure what folks call it but it's on all the best burgers I've had this year. It's sweet and rich, and pink or at least a dark, purple-brown.
I'm not a chef but I have caramelized onions before. This has got to be different. It reminds me more of pickled sushi ginger. But it ain't like that -- it's firm, minced and greasy.
I've Googled around but I only seem to find, literally, onion jelly recipes -- which I would think would be too sweet or not oniony enough.
