This very simple chutney goes well with strong Cheddar, with a ploughman's sandwich lunch, or with a dinner of sausages and mash or lamb with spinach and lentils.


  • 25g butter
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • ½ bulb wet garlic, thinly sliced, or 1 clove dried (normal) garlic, crushed or finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp demerara or other light brown sugar
  • 1½ tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp red wine


Prep time: 5 min
Cooking time: 35 min
  • Step 1

    In a small saucepan or frying pan, melt the butter and add the onions and garlic.
  • Step 2

    Gently cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions are golden. Add the sugar, vinegar and wine. Cook for another 10-15 minutes, until the mixture is sticky and coloured. Keep warm until needed.
