    cookingpompom's Note:

    My DH loves condiments - particularly ones he can use on his sandwiches. I bought a jar of Onion Jam at a market, he almost licked the jar clean. I have been busy re-creating the original and this recipe is amazing. If you enjoy cold cuts (ham, roast beef, silverside etc) this might be for you.

    1. 1
      Peel and thinly slice your onions (I use a Mandolin for this).
    2. 2
      In a large heavy based pot, heat the oil and add the onions, stir frequently over a medium heat until caramalised (15-20 minutes).
    3. 3
      Add the mustard seeds and fry for an additional 2 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add the brown sugar and cook for another 2 minutes (it needs to be well dissolved).
    5. 5
      Add the remaining ingredients and reduce to a low simmer and cook for another 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      Carefully pour the hot onion jam into prepared jars ( hot sterilized jars if you want to keep them on your shelf - will keep for 6 months) or a clean jar if you want to pop it into your fridge and use it within 2-4 hours (or once chilled). Keeps in the fridge for 4 weeks. Once a jar is opened, this jam must be refridgerated.

      I like this. I used a combination of Sambal and Mark's Chilli Sauce for the chili sauce. Then I used 20% less sugar. This is nice, smooth and has just the right bite.
