  • 550 g Red Onions finely sliced
  • 3 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3 tbsp Dark Muscovado Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 150 ml White Wine Vinegar
  • 150 g Dark Brown Soft Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 Clove of Garlic
  • 5 g Fresh Ginger finely grated


  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add the finely sliced onions. Cook over a gentle heat for about 20-30 minutes until the onions are soft and begin to darken.
  • Add the muscovado sugar, stir through and cook for another 10 minutes.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer over a low heat for about an hour until it has thickened and the liquid has reduced.
  • Store in sterilised jars. The chutney can be eaten straight away once cool, however it's best to let the flavour develop for a month.
