Onion Jam.

Onion jam is delicious either hot or cold, and is an excellent accompaniment to sausages, cold meats, roasts, or just about any cooked meat. 


A little oil.

3 onions, thinly sliced.

2 tablespoons brown sugar.

1 cup beef stock.

Salt to taste.

Cayenne pepper to taste.

1 tblsp balsamic vinegar.

1 tblsp Dijon mustard. 


Heat a little oil in the bottom of a pan and gently fry the onion, adding the sugar, until the onion is brown. Add the cayenne pepper, salt, stock and vinegar and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to the lowest level and allow to cook, uncovered, for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the mustard, cook through for two or three minutes, then place in a container in a cool place. Leave for at least three hours. 

Yields: 1 cup.
