Caramelised Onion Jam

I recently posted a recipe for Asian Chilli Jam which tasted delicious and was very easy to make so it got me thinking about other flavours that I could make using the same recipe, just changing a few of the ingredients. I decided upon an onion jam as I've been wanting to make an onion chutney for a while since hearing about one of my 'Chutney Chums' (the Boy & Me / Mummy Mishaps) recipes here.

You will need :

500g red onions (100g chopped & 400g sliced)
tbsp olive oil
220g tomatoes, roughly chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 red chilli, chopped
250g granulated sugar
100g Balsamic vinegar

  • Blend the chopped onion, tomatoes, chilli and garlic together
  • Fry the sliced onion lightly in the olive oil (don't brown it) for approx 10 minutes until soft
  • Add the sugar to the sliced onions and bring to the boil
  • Add the blended mix and balsamic to the sliced onions and sugar
  • Simmer for around 45 minutes until thick
  • Pour into sterilised jars



I will be doing a round up of all my homemade festive gifts this week so keep a look out for that.
