Onion Marmalade
8 Brown onions - sliced
1 x Tablespoon Cumin seeds- whole
1 x Tablespoon Coriander Seeds-whole
3 Cups white wine vinegar
2.5 cups brown sugar

Add onions, seeds, vinegar - Boil for 15 minutes

Add sugar - Boil/simmer 1 hr

Bottle normally in sterile jars.

If anyone does try this I would love to know what you think.

I made up a half quantity and only gently boiled it as I wasnt sure of the time factors with the smaller amount.  I found it didnt seem to get to where I thought it should in the reduction and boiled it fairly hard for an extra 15 minutes at the end.

Very nice, delicately spiced, I am now sorry I didnt make the full quantity.  It would also go well as a side dish with an indian meal.  I had it on ricotta cheese and muffins for breakfast and its quite addictive.

Rastas I might be a senior and partially blonde but if 1/2 made l jar I guess the whole might make 2 jars (depending on how large the brown onions were). Cheesy

The jar shown is about 2 cups and was bought at Coles.

I had some on a ham and salad sandwich for lunch and then more on a pork salad for dinner.  Went well with all.

Oh my lord Carolyn...  Never would I insinuate that you were not of your full faculties (particularly after reading your posts)...

I was unsure if the jar was singular, or if an additional jar was secreted away out of shot..

I am thinking I want to make 6-8 jars up for friends..  So maybe I need to triple the recipe..... (and see how it goes)

Carolyn, many thanks for giving it a go and enjoying the flavour, your right, fantastic with a curry second only to Hot Egg Plant Pickles with a curry.

There is also a balsamic vinegar version of this which goes great at a BBQ, especially topping a banger in a bread role, will see if I can find it

Rastas  Smiley I looked in the reject shop today at the local Westfields and they have two sizes in "small" jars which would be ideal for for gift giving.  Of course if you happen to have "baby food" jars or the small vegemite ones I think they also would be a good size (around 1/2 cup) for giving.

"Balsamic vinegar seems to be all the rage (well it was on the ships demos).  They used a Balsamic Reduction - place l cup (not aged) in small saucepan and bring to boil.  Lower the heat to medium low and reduce by half. Pour into a non reactive container and let cool completely.  Balsamic vinegar reduction will keep, covered in the refrigerator for up to l month. They used plain balsamic, balsamic reduction and aged balsamic in their recipes"

Ewwwww...  "Equal" is one of those things that I am very careful cooking with..  I have had a bad experience or two.

It will be nice to see how it goes, but my gut feeling is that the caramelisation you are chasing with the sugar will not be successful...
