Pippa Middleton’s Red Onion Marmalade
This tangy relish is quick and easy to make and goes very well with cold meats and leftovers, baked Camembert and cheese -or haggis- based canapés. This is best made as you need it, but will keep for a couple of weeks in a jar in the fridge.
Makes 2 x 350g jars.
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 red onions, peeled and finely sliced
- a pinch of salt
- 4 teaspoons soft brown sugar
- 2 star anise
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 4 tablespoons red currant jelly (blackcurrant works as well)
- 200ml red wine
- 100ml red wine vinegar
Heat the oil in a pan, add the onion and salt, cover with a disc of baking parchment over a low heat for 30 minutes, to soften. Remove the parchment, stir in the remaining ingredients, turn up the head and simmer, uncovered, for another 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thick and syrupy. Cool slightly before storing in sterilised jars with vinegar-proof lids.
