Onion marmalade

This recipe originally came from "The Age" Epicure section probably in August 2008 (I lost the article, at least for the moment, so cannot properly acknowledge the source). Neil Ewart made it, and it was sensational. Here is what he gave me from memory.

  • 1kg brown onions, sliced
  • 1kg sugar
  • 75g mustard seeds
  • 300ml sweet chilli sauce
  • 400ml red wine vinegar

Saute the onions in a little olive oil to soften. Add the sugar and let dissolve. Add the remaining ingredients and boil until the right consistency†. Take off heat and spoon into hot, sterilised jars. Seal. † Not quite the same ruthless precision he displays at the Bridge table.
