Red Onion Marmalade

There are some things in life that just work together. Rice and curry, rhubard and custard, scones and jam and one of my favourites: Cheese and Chutney. Earlier this year I made the most delicious Sri-Lankan Spiced Plum Chutney which has definitely aged beautifully. Today inspired by a pile of red onions I got up early (thanks to the little one) and we set about making this delight. It’s pretty quick to make and only has a few ingredients (if you have the onions you’ll probably have the rest too).

We’ve made ours as Christmas gifts. I’m planning on making a few homemade hampers for friends: chutneys, jam, biscuits and truffles perhaps. Makes a great present for anyone on a special diet as it’s gluten free, wheat free, egg free and nut free đŸ˜‰

Recipe:

9 red onions

4 cloves garlic

dried thyme

50g butter

1 tbsp olive oil

4 tbsp white wine vinegar

4 tbsp balsamic vinegar

4 tbsp white sugar

4 tbsp dark brown sugar

Salt

 

  • Peel and quarter the onions, peel the garlic, then either finely chop or use a food processor to do this for you.

  • Heat a large pan, add butter and oil, then cook the onions and garlic for 5 minutes.
  • Add the vinegar and sugar, stir well and bring to the boil.
  • Reduce the heat to a simmer and leave for about 30 minutes until it thickens.
  • Taste – add more sugar/vinegar to taste and add salt to taste.
  • Pot up in sterlised jars. These quantities made about 6-7 jars.

Although this can be eaten straight away it’s a lot better if you keep it a couple of weeks first. I can’t wait to eat mine!
