    I think I'm going to give thios a go - seems straightforward enough.

    Juan question though - do I need to dry my onions first (as if storing them). I was going to use the bolted red onions as they won't store.

    Practise makes us a little better, it doesn't make us perfect.

    HeyWayne, you don't need to dry your onions - use your bolting red onions, they will be just the job. I made some last year and it kept great in the freezer.

    From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.

    Just wanna add that I am making more of this just now using my bolted reds - did loads last year and sold it at Farmers Markets - have recently had customers coming back to me and asking if I was doing it again this year - a better recommendation for PW's recipe I cannot think of !!

    Guess what I gonna be doing?
    Loads of my onions 'split' with all that rain we had, so as they wont store it will be marmalade time for them!
    going to use white onions though.
    Thanks again!

    Well, made mine at the weekend and I don't think it could be easier! Thanks PW.

    Although mine was all done by guestimation - I had various sized onions, only a part 500ml bottle of sherry vinegar, and approximated because I couldn't find any exact conversion from cups to proper weights. I think I ended up with about 150gms of sugar, 450ml sherry vinegar and the rest as per the recipe.

    Tastes nice enough and was lovely on burgers we had at the barbecue. Having it in my sandwiches this week too.
