I think you should always give Christmas gifts that you yourself love and I love eating so I have decided to make lots of foodie gifts this year.
I thought I would share some of the details with you. This is a great recipe that is quick to make and goes well with cold cuts or for my fellow veggies cheese. Lots and lots of cheese - man I love Christmas!
you will need;
1.2kg red onions
500g cherry tomatoes
3 cooking apples - cored peeled and diced
4 tbsp soft brown sugar
6 tbsp cider vinegar
250g fresh cranberries
3tsp mixed spice
1/2 tsp hot chili powder
2 tsp salt
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp grated dried ginger
1 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1 tsp coarse black pepper
1 cup of apple juice
- Roughly chop the onions lets say quarter them and thickly slice the quarters as a size guide. (I am lazy and normally food process my onions in cooking DON'T do that for this recipe as it will ruin the consistency.)
- Fry the onions in the olive oil keep the pan lid on for most of this process to keep them soft - you don't want crispy fried onions. When the onions are all soft add the rest of the ingredients.
- Simmer for half an hour or until the consistency is thick. Add more sugar or spice to your desired taste if you require.
- Spoon into sterilised jars and make pretty labels.
