Orange Onion Marmalade

by Sayraphim on December 28, 2009

As requested by the lovely Bianca of Sadie and Lance, here is the recipe for Orange Onion Marmalade, an awesome addition to eggs at breakfast or anywhere a busy modern person requires chutney.


10 white onions
4 oranges (juice the oranges and zest them too, keep these separate)
1 cup white wine vinegar
1 and 1/3 cups of brown sugar
4 tsps turmeric
8 tsps mustard seeds


Cut up the onions into chunks, put into a saucepan with the vinegar  and orange juice and bring to the boil.

Add the sugar, turmeric, mustard seeds and the orange zest, boil for 10 mins until onion is soft, but not mooshy.

Then turn heat down and simmer for 30 mins. This should make enough for around 6 mid sized jars, depending on what size jars of course.

You are more than welcome! When I make the Onion Chutney again I'll share that recipe too.

I look forward to hearing how it went!
