Onion Marmalade Recipe

Recently I have had a few requests for the onion marmalade recipe I regularly least 3kg at a time! 
I almost can't keep up with the demand for it. It gets eaten on sandwiches with cheese, cold meats or avocado, eggs on toast, burgers and even pizzas! Just yesterday one of the teens, who is a regular visitor here, declared that onion marmalade is the reason he keeps coming back! 

3 kg onions chopped as you like
700g sugar
200 ml red wine
500 ml vinegar
200 ml balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper

In a big pot combine the onions with about a cup of sugar and cook over a medium heat for about 25 minutes, being careful not to let them brown.
Then add the rest of the ingredients and allow to cook until most of the liquid has reduced and thickened.
This can take some time and often I add a tablespoon of corn flour to speed up the thickening process. 
This also prevents the onions from becoming too soft from a long cooking process. 

It is then put into sterilised jars and usually doesn't last long before I am making more....
I do believe it will store well though.

Hope you will try it and let me know what you think!
