    Still using the windfall chutney made last year. Pear, Apple, damson, onion, a lot of ginger, a significant amount of garlic and muscovado sugar. Tastes wonderful with a really sharp proper cheddar.......

    Edit - didn't use a recipe. Just chucked it all in and used twice as much ginger and garlic as thought suitable at the time

    Second edit - reading below, vinegar was also in there as well. Forgot that bit

    Onion marmalade:
    Very thinly sliced onions.
    Cook very slowly on low heat with olive oil and tbsp water.
    Add about 300 grams sugar
    1/2 bottle balsamic vinegar
    About 200ml red wine vinegar.
    Heat, stir until sugar dissolved,
    Higher heat for about 5 mins.
    Cool slightly, put into sterilised jars.

    Onion chutney
    Onions, sliced
    Any combination of apples, plums, figs--chopped
    Raisins or sultanas.
    Cook onions gently in olive oil and tbsp water.
    When soft add fruit
    Add about 200 grams sugar
    Stir until sugar dissolved.
    Add mixture of balsamic vinegar and red or white wine vinegar.
    Cook until it looks jel-like .
    Cool slightly and put in sterilised jars.

    Balsamic vinegar gives richer flavour.
    Combination of sugar and vinegars make the preservative.

    Maple syrup - like that but it would never last long enough here to actually be used in a chutney unless locked away somewhere....
