Caramelised Onion Chutney

You can use this delicious caramelised onion chutney for so many things, or simply serve with cold meats and cheese.

A while ago we dined out on pizza and for starters they served the most amazing pizza bread topped with caramelised onion chutney. Since then I have been hooked! I always have a jar to hand in the cupboard, but I figured I needed to make my own.

I am so glad I did, because it tastes amazing! Sweet caramelised onions! Give me this with a block of cheese and I’ll be a happy girl for the day!

The only hardship to this recipe is cutting the onions, I can’t say I am a huge fan of stinging eyes, but who really is?! I have actually resorted to wearing goggles before and apart from looking slightly crazy, it does work!

The best thing about this chutney is that it is so versatile! I mean, onions go with loads of things, right?

Add it to gravy, pop it on a pizza,  a filling to sausage rolls, and so, so many more things! So it’s definitely worth making a jar or two.
