I love red onions – they are so beautiful, and oh so delicious!

Red onions are my preferred kind of onion to use for most dishes – the deep purple can colour a dish beautifully whether it’s raw or cooked, and I love the extra sweetness it brings to the table (pun intended 😉).

In this vegan red onion jam, the sweetness of the onion combined with the balsamic and red wine creates a deep, rich flavour.

This jam is a wonderful addition to cheezeboards, can be enjoyed on pizza, on a piece of toast, served with roasted veggies, or just on a cracker on its own.
