Caramelised Red Onion Chutney

This is one of my all time favourite things to eat. I have loved it for many years now, right from when it was first available. Now you can get all sorts of different chutneys, but this is still my fave !
I had it recently out for lunch and I decided I just HAD to try for myself, ooh and it's on my Autumn Bucket List so it's a tick off that ! Woo hoo.
So, I kind of adapted the recipe and made it up as I went a long. I just used one red onion, (it was just for me) sliced it thingly and popped some oil in a pan and lightly fried. Be careful not too brown the onions.

I then used golden caster sugar and just poured in a big spoonful to cover the onions (not very exact sorry) but you can see here how much I used.

So then this is the tricky bit, some recipes said to simmer for 20 minutes, but the first time, I stepped away for 2 minutes and it burnt. So stay with it and you kind of know when its ready, the syrup will thicken, keep going a little bit more, stirring occasionally and then it's ready !!

Now for the naughty bit....this is THE best way to enjoy this chutney, warm ciabatta bread and baked camembert. DELICIOUS !!

Yum yum yummy !!! Oh I want some again now !!

Enjoy and let me know if you try it and get as addicted to it as I am !
