    Recipe Information

    6 Red Onions, finely chopped

    1 Red Chilli, finely chopped

    6 Garlic Cloves, finely chopped

    150g Demerara Sugar

    100ml Balsamic Vinegar

    10g Salt

    30ml Olive Oil


    Heat the oil in a pan. Sweat the onions and salt until translucent. Add the garlic and chilli and cook for a further 2 minutes.

    Increase the temperature to a medium/high heat. Add the sugar, stirring to prevent it from sticking to the pan.

    When the mixture begins to bubble, add the balsamic vinegar and reduce to a thick, sticky chutney.

    Remove the pan from the heat and transfer the chutney to a sterilised jar.

    Seal and store in a cool, dark place for up to 6 months.
