    Cost me £15

    One of the replies mentioned Nigella Lawson and OH said she didn't remember "Onion Mush", she did a search on NL's website and realised there was a book she didn't have.

    Well she has it now!

    I made the red onion marmalade today - used a mix of red and white onions that were undeveloped in taste and size - they were fairly bland and tiny, The end result tasted great and I guess a few weeks standing will make it even better.

    Thanks.

    I made this last weekend with the addition of Dexterdog's apple and sultanas, it is delicious. Had some on some cheese toast tonight with a cuppa, yum yum!

    I susbstituted part of the wine vinegar with pickling vinegar that already had the spices added. It really tastes great, I gave a jar to my neighbour and one to a friend and they have both asked for the recipe.

    I popped into Lidl yesterday and their red onions were half price. If you have a Lidl near you it would be a great time to make this recipe on the cheap.

    I bought 4 bags as this recipe is just the biz.

    Hi PW,

    Made this recipe today. It took over 3 hours. What did I do wrong? It wouldn't reduce.

    Oh, I forgot to say. When I did decant it into the jars, it looks menacingly dark and is very thick.

    I had to reduce it this much, as the liquid was quite thin mostly up until the very end.

    Any ideas?
