  • I have this sack of onions OH brought back from one of the other farms... I have now filled the freezer.

    So I thought I would try some onion marmalde..

    These are the ingredients..

    1kg onions
    5 tablespoons red wine vinegar
    100g brown sugar
    2 tablespoons oil

    Now I dont have any red wine vinegar..... I do however, have red wine :beer: and malt vinegar...

    Can I just use the malt vinegar? Do I have to sacrifice my red wine?

    Thanks in advance

    I think the vinegar is there to provide acetic acid - red wine vinegar would be perfect - but, I am sure a good malt vinegar would substitute. I would add a good splash of red wine as well! If I had any.........or if I had white wine vinegar would use that - but as I normally keep in cider vinegar - I would use that!
  • You could just use the malt vinegar but the flavour might be altered a little. A lot of chutneys use malt vinegar anyway so it should be allright.

    I have just recieved my winter sack of onions. I had one last winter and kept it in the gargare with a blanket wrapped around it and the onions lasted all winter. That way I did not need to freeze or preserve them but carried on using them as normal.
    I am playing all of the right notes just not necessarily in the right order :D.
  • Thanks to both of you. Well I 'experimented'

    I made some with a splash of red wine and malt vinegar and I made some with a splash of worcester sauce and malt vinegar, and I ran out of sugar so used honey instead lol.

    Result.... yummy :-) ... think hot dog onions :-)

    I'll get another sack next week so will have to think of something else to do with them ....

    Oh and I had a few left in the pan which wouldnt fill a jar so I mixed them with a little flour and made DD(5) some onion bhajis which she demolished :-)

  • With next weeks sack, try French onion soup, it's delicious. Only trouble is (for me) because you have to slice the onions, so they are in rings, it makes me cry buckets! Normally I do all my onions in the food processor to try and cut down the crying, but this recipe has to be done by hand.

    Mind you, I am particularly wimpy when it comes to onions, I cry when slicing a spring onion!
  • Thanks Seabright, I made that and we have just finished it today in OH flask. Got a veg soup on now with some barley in it :-)
