Put some red onions in your basket this week.
Step 1: Chop off the top and root and peel the red onions. They need to be finely sliced so use a food processor with a fine blade or do it by hand with a sharp knife.
Step 2: Put the sliced onions into a wide pot along with the sugar. Stir together and put the lid on the pot and cook on a low heat for about 20 minutes until the onions are completely soft and the sugar has dissolved. Check it half way through.
Step 3: Pour in the wine and the vinegar and cook with the lid off on low for a further 20-30 minutes. When the onions are ready the liquid will have evaporated and the onions will be sweet and soft.
Cool completely then transfer to a clean jar. This will keep in the fridge for 1 month.
