How to make it

  2. Stir in 3tbsp of sugar and turn up heat so that the onions caramelise. They will go a rich brown colour, but don’t let them burn. Add the rest of sugar, 200ml Sarson’s Malt Vinegar and the remaining ingredients.
  3. Simmer for 15 mins until the mixture becomes thick.
  4. Spoon into sterilised Kilner® Jars (about 3 x 250ml jars), and leave mature for a couple of weeks.
