A Simple Red Onion Marmalade

Friends of mine recently gave me some red onions from their garden. I was delighted, I love red onions and I’m quite happy to simply slice them and have them on a salad or a sambo. But before I devoured the lot I decided to save some for a caramelised red onion marmalade. It’s sticky, tasty and goes great with lots of things. In fact I’m not sure there’s anything better to add to a dish than this, it even works a treat with yummy mash potatoes…but that’s for another time.


What you’ll need: 

  • 4 Red Onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons of caster sugar (or to your taste)
  • Some oil for frying


Heat some oil in a non stick frying pan and add the onions. Cook on a low temperature until the onions have softened (10 to 15mins). Add the sugar and the balsamic vinegar and mix through. There are no fixed rules for the quantities of the balsamic vinegar and the sugar, go with your taste buds! Continue to cook on the low heat for a further 15 minutes or until the mixture is sticky.


Allow to cool and refrigerate!

Share and enjoy!
