So I decided to make onion marmalade using this recipe (adapted from things I found on the internet based on things I had in my cupboard):
- 6 large onions
- 2 Tbsp Mustard seeds
- 4 Bay leaves
- 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
- 2 Tbsp muscovado brown sugar
- Knob of butter
- Black Peppercorns
Peel and chop the onions into small thin slices and cook slowly in a little butter and the seasoning on a medium heat until the onions start to become translucent. (This will probably take around 30 minutes).
Then add the mustard seeds and bay leaves and continue to cook until any liquid is reduced and the onions start to "catch" on the bottom of the pan.
Ladle into a sterilised jar or eat it up hot. Went down a treat with The Boyfriend served on sourdough with some goats cheese. I had the same with the addition of some prosciutto. Dee-lish-ous!
