    I have just harvested a good crop of red onions from the allotment and I love red onion chutney so would like to try to make some.

    I have never made any jam or chutney before, so I am looking for a full proof recipe. I'd appreciate your recipes or any chutney making advise for beginners

    Thank you

    onion marmalade
    • #5
    • 20th Aug 07, 6:11 PM
    Hi There
    Dont have a chutney recipe but have a fab onion marmalade one which is great with meat, cheeses & most veggie dishes. In fact I made a batch today as it never lasts long in our house!! Makes about x4 1lb jars.

    1.25kg onions
    3 tbsp salt
    1kg sugar
    500mls red wine vinegar
    2tsp caraway seeds

    Chop onions cover wih salt leave for an hour

    Rinse & dry

    Add sugar, vinegar & seeds into saucepan, boil for 5mins then add onions. Cook for a couple of hours on a low heat until the mix becomes thick, onion translucent & brown. Can't go wrong.
    Put in sterilized jars.

    Yum

    Hi Joscar
    This is my first post - but you must have read my mind as I cooking onion chutney as i type!
    I downloaded the recipe from UKTV Food, as follows:
    3large onion (thinly sliced)
    3 garlic cloves (thinly sliced)
    3tbsp olive oil
    1tsp mustard seeds
    1tsp corriander seeds
    3tbsp red wine vinegar
    4tbsp dark muscovado sugar
    method:
    add onions, garlic, oil, mustard & corriander seeds to pan. Stir well & cook gently for 20 mins.
    Stir in vinegar & sugar then cook for 10-20 mins until translucent & reduced.
    Add couple spoons water & cook for 10 mins until well thickened & slightly sticky.
    Fill prepared jam/kilner jars & store for up to 2 months, then use as required.
    The chutney smells delicious - have fun!

    Onion & Tomato Relish
    • #9
    • 21st Aug 07, 10:38 AM
    I'm fairly sure I recently saw a recipe for making onion & tomato relish, or something very similar, but can't remember where now. I don't suppose anyone has a recipe do they please?

    I found one on Delia's site but her's is a hot one, as in cooked, (don't mind it being hot with chillies ) and I just want to make a simple cold one to add to burgers and salad for lunch.

    Thanks

    Red Onion Marmalade
    Hi

    I did do a search and had a look in the indexed collections but couldnt find what I was looking for.

    Anway I am looking for a recipe for red onion marmalade. There are quite a few I have found on the web but I wondered if anyone had a tried and tested one.

    Also if I made it now could I keep it in jars to use as Christmas pressies?

    I did see that one - the other recipes are quite different. Think will have to try a few - not sure if that one will last long in jars though :confused: .

    Try this one, there no butter in this. so reduces the risk of it separating. really easy too.

    2 kgs red onions
    750 ml malt vinegar
    800 grams soft brown sugar
    1 teaspoon salt.
    about 1/2 teaspoon of course ground black pepper (believe me its lovely)
    2 tablespoons of freshly chopped thyme.
    2 bay leaves.

    simmer the chopped onions in vinegar for about 1 hour
    then add salt,pepper sugar Bay and thyme. bring to boil then simmer till thick, spoon straight into jars and pop the lids on turn upside down for 5 mins(this creates the vacuum seal) and then you can store for upto 1 year.

    lovely with cold meats and even better in a cheese sandwich.
  • ladydukes
    OH
    PS
    remove Bay leaves before you jar it.
    LOL

    Not OS, but I went to a taster evening at a farm the other night & bought some tacklement tomato chutney (& amazing horseradish).

    Anyway in Waitrose yesterday the Bay Tree chutneys were 2 for 5, so bought some more, they are lovely.

    I'm completely new to this marmalade/chutney lark as you can tell

    Thanks Icey x

    There are ways of sterilising jars for preserves:You can pop them on their own in the dishwasher ( this was a tip from a magazine) or place clean jam jars in the oven at gas 4, 180C, 350F for 20 minutes to sterilise. I've also read somewhere that closing the lid whilst the contents is hot creates a seal...( i'm not sure of this though as another magazine says to let contents cool before closing the lid..)
