    Pearlesyarn's Note:

    Adapted from Margarite Patten's Every Day Cook Book Apple Chutney Recipe. It's thick and sweet and very good with ham or cheese.Try it on cheese on toast or add it to the gravy for sausage and mash. I also add it to meatloaf in the mixing. For a darker richer taste substitute the 1/2 pint of red wine vinegar for 1/4 pint each of red wine vinegar and balsamic vinegar.

    1. 1
      Put the thinly sliced onions into a large heavy bottomed pan that has a tight fitting lid together with the vinegar and simmer until soft.
    2. 2
      Add the spices, salt and ginger and stir.
    3. 3
      Add the sugar and boil steadily until the marmalade is thick and a wooden spoon drawn through the mixture leaves a distinct gap.
    4. 4
      Spoon into hot preserving jars and seal.
    5. 5
      Store in a cool, dark, dry cupboard. Can be used immediately but improves with keeping and will keep well for a year.

      Delicious onion marmalade recipe! I took a suggestion (not yours) and replaced half of the red wine vinegar with red wine. It is very sweet, so a little goes a long way. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2010. Edited to add: I reduced the recipe to make a small batch, and my two little jars are happily stored in the refrigerator where preserving them isn't an issue. ;)

      Absolutely first class especially with cheeses . I have made about 10 batches over the last 3 months , all have turned out wonderfully . I have changed the recipe slightly to suit my own taste and have increased the pickling spices to 1 1/2 tsp and making sure that all the different types of spices are included . As a guideline for other makers 1885 g of onions after peeling and slicing and the other ingredients increased accordingly produces 7 1/2 lb jars exactly .
