Caramelised Onions

Serves 875ml approx.  Prep 10 mins  Cook 50 mins


  • 6 red onions
  • 6 tbsp brown sugar
  • 6 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp oil


1.) Peel the onions and slice into rings. Put them into a large saucepan with the sugar, vinegar, oil, 375ml water, 1 tsp of salt and some ground black pepper.
2.) Bring the onions to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently, stirring occassionally for 40-45 minutes or until all the liquid has evaporated and the onions are very soft. During the last stages of cooking keep an eye on the onions as they can stick and burn, give them a stir every now and again.

3.) Remove from the heat and allow to cool before storing in the fridge in a sealed container. It will last up to a week. Serve at room temperature or reheat in a saucepan.
