    Hi Everyone,

    I love pickles esp branston and picalili :) however I have 2 issues that they are synned and also that I live overseas and I have to pay thru the nose to get them....so I decided to make my own onion chutney, here is my recipe:

    1kg onions (ı used red onions)
    200ml of balsamic vinegar
    300ml of apple vinegar
    couple of cloves garlic
    salt and pepper
    5 dessertspoons granulated sweetener

    I sliced the onions up small and reasonably thin, added the vinegars and sweetener and then simmered for approx one hour until the vinegar had evaporated and formed a thick sticky sauce. I then transferred into steralized jars and sealed.

    In my opinion (although I am biased) its a great chutney and would liven up a chicken breast or a cheese sandwich (as I ad today!)

    That sounds great Claire - will definitely try it some time.

    Just thinking on a jacket spud with HEX cheese, and SW coleslaw it would be delicious.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the recipe, will need to see if we can buy apple vinegar in the UK, if not what else could be used?

    Cheers

    Hi Lyn,

    I think cider vinegar would be the next best thing or white wine vinegar maybe (maybe its actually cider vinegar but they dont call it that cos we are supposedly a muslim country!!)

    I took jars to my friends and they are raving aout how good it is too :)

    Enjoy x

    Thanks boncuk for the amazing tip!! I adore chutneys and anything involving caramelised red onions!! I'm definitely going to make this! I may even make them in gorgeously decorated jars and give them to people as Chrimbo pressies!!X

    Thank you so much for the idea of making free chutney!! I'd never have considered trying it with sweetener but made some a fewd ays ago and it's gorgeous!!! I just used onions, balsamic vinegar and a sprinkle of all spice and cooked it down really slowly over a few hours until it was reduced and sticky. I'll be experimenting with other kinds now as I just can't get enough of it and it's all free!!!!!

    WOW!!

    I have made this this morning. I made it using Cider Vinegar but halved all the ingredients (just in case i didn't like it!!) and it is soooooooooooooooooooo nice!!

    Thank you so so much for posting.

    Myself & hubby have just had it for lunch -

    I got some breakfast Mushrooms & baked them for 10 mins, then put some chutney in, some grilled bacon & topped with laughing cow cheese (broke up into pieces) & grilled for a futher 2 mins or so - served with salad & more chutney on the side & it was heavenly :D

    Hubby says its a definate winner too :happy036:

    what a saviour! my weakness is cheese and chutney! thats how i ruined all my efforts over christmas, i ate cheese and chutney at least once a day for a month! I make my own chutneys anyway but never thought of using sweetner, thats why i'm not a rocket scientist i guess. Def trying this, will let you know if i come up with any other flavours.
