  • 2 lbs 900gm red onions
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¾ cup soft brown sugar
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar


  • Peel the onions and thinly slice (this can be done in a food processor).
  • Take a medium or large sized saucepan or pot and heat the olive oil. Cook down the onions over a medium to high heat stirring often for around 10 minutes until soft and translucent.
  • Add the brown sugar and stir over heat until the sugar dissolves then add the balsamic vinegar and stir.
  • Reduce to a low heat stirring occasionally for around 40 minutes until the balsamic has reduced to the stage that the onions are nicely coated.
