Onion confiture

Recipe from: 6/1/2003 12:00:00 AM

Ingredients 7
Servings 12


  • 3
    large onions, thinly sliced into rings
  • 100
    unsalted butter
  • 30
    seedless raisins
  • 65
    brown sugar
  • 125
    apple or grape vinegar
  • 15
    yellow mustard seeds
  • 1
    x 2.5 cm piece fresh ginger, grated


Heat a deep, medium-sized heavy-based saucepan over moderate heat.
Sauté the onions in the butter until they are glossy and soft and the moisture from the butter has evaporated. Stir continuously.
Add the raisins, sugar and vinegar, taking care because it may spatter.
Boil rapidly until the mixture thickens and no longer sticks to the bottom of the pan.
Add the mustard seeds and ginger, and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Cool and serve.
