This is so good. I doubled the recipe and got 5 jars which we gave 3 away as Xmas pressies but now we have none left for ourselves. Need to make some more very soon especially as the last batch didn't even sit for a week. Dave reckons it's the best on toast with a slice of cheese.

Tis, if this chutney is going to improve sitting for a month, it'll be a 10 star recipe! It was super yummy just licking the spoon and scraping the pan. I sliced my onions on a mandolin and they seemed to release a lot of moisture and take for ever (well over an hour) to reach "sticky" in step 1. They hadn't got particularly brown, but had cooked away so much I decided to just go on with the recipe. It seems to have worked wonderfully, but I only got 2 1/3 El Paso Salsa jars worth. Red onions are on sale at our local supermarket this week, so I'm going to make more later in the week as I know I'll kick myself if I don't.

An excellent chutney that is perfect for many uses -- especially cheese platters and pizzas. I mis-read the ingredients and used red wine instead of red wine vinegar (oops -- guess it's time for new glasses), but the end result is delicious. Next time, I'll have to try the other option. Thanks so much for posting.

My boys love this in sandwiches and chicken wraps... and they always tell me to put more! Delicious and simple recipe.

Oh my goodness! This chutney recipe is perfection! The sweetness of the balsamic vinegar, onion and brown sugar combined with the spice of the chilli, makes this chutney so rich is flavour! I have made this a couple time now! The second batch I made I added roast garlic in with the onion. Spectacular!

This is the best chutney ever! wowee I have made it twice and all my friends have had a jar and they keep saying "Wow when are you making it again"!! You really need to make it it's so easy and cheap because of the amount you get from it. It beats even the best shop bought brands

Well I went on the hunt for an onion chutney recipe after my partner (who doesn't eat pickles or chutneys normally) tried some when we were out for meal the other night and found he really liked it! I found this one and because I'm fairly new to chutney making, I chose this one as very straight forward, very clear instructions (except it doesn't state the size of onions to use, so I used 8 medium sized) and excellent reviews too.
I hadn't even finished making it when Conor sampled and it got a very big thumbs up from him, so praise indeed!! Thanks for posting.
