Onions 1b

✅ Needs tweaking.

A kilogram bag of red onions had been in my fridge for a while, so I thought I'd try out another onion recipe. This time, chop up a kilogram of onions, mix with some oil — maybe I used 40ml — and cook on low for eight hours.

After this time, I added two and a half Braeburn apples, 100g of raisins and a tablespoon of cinnamon. I did think about adding a few cloves, because I like the flavour so much, but decided to leave that for another day. After stirring, cook on low for a futher four hours.

The result was much better. The apples were stewed and the raisins were plump. They both gave the mixture sweetness. The onions were still a bit crunchy, so next time I'd cook them on low for twelve hours before putting in the other ingredients for four. One tablespoon of cinnamon for a kilogram of onions is too much, so I'd also reduce this to one teaspoon as one of a mixture of spices instead.
