This onion jam is simple to make and can be made while the rest of the meal is being prepared and cooked.
While the recipe calls for red onion, I usually just use the brown onions from the pantry and it tastes just as good. You could also vary the type of vinegar you use. I generally don’t measure the sauce or vinegar, so taste and adjust the sauce quantities to your liking.
20 Minute Onion Jam
1 red onion finely sliced
1 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp sweet chilli sauce
2 tsp white wine vinegar
- Cook onion in some oil over very low heat until softened and starting to caramelise (about 20 minutes) stirring occasionally. Don’t let the onion brown.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and cook for a few extra minutes giving it a stir every now and then.
- Serve over sausages (or anything else you fancy).
