Making your own red onion chutney
Cutting onions… It is so not my favorite job to do. They always make me cry horribly… especially fresh onions. It’s much better if you leave them to stand for a few weeks, but well, that’s not good for the taste… 😉 If I have any choice in the matter I will leave the cutting gladly to someone else… This time Charlotte was the lucky one and she cut all 8 onions that went into this recipe… What are friends for right? Lol…
- 8 red onions
- 75 gr sugar
- 100 ml red wine vinegar
- 100 ml red wine
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- bit of balsamico vinegar
- olive oil
Cut all onion in rings. Don't make them too thick but also not too thin.
Heat the oil in a big pan and add the onions and the sugar and softly caramelize. Don't let it burn.
Put the vinegar, wine and the balsamico into the mix and leave to simmer for at least ten minutes on low heat. Taste to see if it is soft enough and thickened to your liking. If not, leave to simmer a bit longer. Leave to cool and put into jars.
