One of the LocalTable subscribers, Susan (we have a few Susans), once mentioned that she wasn’t a big shallot eater, but when faced with more shallots than she knew what to do with, she consulted the great Google oracle and made spring onion jam. Nice one!
When I ended up including a big load of red onions in the boxes last week, I remembered Susan’s idea and thought I’d give it a go with red onions. My first attempt ended with red onion toffee, but my second attempt was a winner! Super duper yummy with a stinky, hard cheese I bought at the SAGE Farmers Market on Tuesday.
Who knew a jam made with onions could be so good? And it also meets one of my key recipe criteria: it’s easy-as (as long as you don’t over cook it).
