As Requested......

Following on from one of my last posts many of you asked about the recipe for the garlic and onion jam.

Well it's not quite a combination you would have on your toast first thing in the morning, although it might be good for a cold or hangover! But I can assure you it is really tasty.

So with out further ado here is the recipe:

Garlic & Onion Jam

Tastes so much nicer than it looks, trust me.

Ingredients needed

2 large Spanish onions (about 1 lb), coarsely chopped
                                                  6 large garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
A good glug extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt or to taste
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

In a heavy bottom saucepan, combine the onions, garlic and olive oil. 

Cover and cook over very low heat, stirring occasionally, until the onions are very soft, golden brown and slightly caramelized, about 1 hour.
Transfer the onion mixture to a food processor or blender and puree. 
Stir in the lemon juice, salt and pepper. 
                 Scrape the jam into a small non corrodible container and let cool completely.
 Once cooled the jam can be covered and stored in the fridge.

I would love to hear from you if you do make it.
I do hope you enjoy it!
