Serves: 4
Onion jam is rich and savoury-sweet, great with pates or in sandwiches.
  • 700g onions
  • 25g butter
  • 140g sugar
  • 7 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 250ml red wine
  1. Peel, slice and roughly chop the onions into 2cm (ish) pieces.
  2. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over a low heat and slowly cook until it turns brown (be careful, it takes a while for it to go brown, but once it does it can very quickly burn).
  3. Add the onions and sugar, mix well and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Cook, covered with a lid, over a low heat for half an hour, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add the wine and sherry and cook for another 3o minutes without a lid, stirring frequently.
  6. It won’t reduce too much, and should still be a bit liquid when put in the jars.
  7. Sterilise the jars in an oven at 180C for 10 minutes, and fill while they are still hot.
