I made 1 1/2 kilos of caramelised onion chutney at the beginning of the month, expecting it to last for months and months. Today I found an empty jar in the sink shock grin - the bugger has been eating it neat with a spoon, it seems, as the cheese hasn't reduced at the same rate!

Back to the stovetop...

And my spoon grin

I'm not even mad, I'm impressed

He has presented a defence that it saved him from eating all the cheese (he's trying to shift a bit of weight at the moment). I'm not sure that he's forgiven just yet though - there needs to be something in it for me aside from a house that smells of vinegar!

Surely he makes the next batch?!

Don't LTB. Just make him peel & chop the onions for the next (bigger) batch!

OMG the title made me giggle.....had visions of coming home to a slobbed out DH on the sofa, surrounded by empty chutney jars and feeling food drunk fgrin

I once ate 3 jars of Patak's lime pickle in a week, but I'm more impressed by your DH.

And can you give us the recipe, please?

You need to buy a safe with a PIN lock and store the next batch on there!

SwearyGodmother Fri 02-Dec-16 07:53:30

He's already started on the new batch fgrin

scrambled it's so easy to make.
1kg red onions
500g (ish) of sugar - I use whatever is to hand so this lot has some dark brown sugar leftover from the Christmas cake as well as caster
Black pepper
700ml (ish) vinegar

Chop onions, bung everything into pot, bring to boil, simmer until gloopy.

He's trying to lose weight so he's been scoffing sugary boiled onions? 😂

SwearyGodmother Fri 02-Dec-16 08:04:40

It's working valium -possibly because he was eating sugary boiled onions with cheese before...

ScrambledSmegs Fri 02-Dec-16 09:22:24

Yum, thank you!

He could patent that diet - people have eaten weirder things and lost weight. I used to work with a woman whose interpretation of Atkins was polish sausages and cheese. It worked shock

ScrambledSmegs Fri 02-Dec-16 09:25:05

Ahem. That's Polish sausages, polish sounds revolting.

Don't want to derail the thread but I think they are polish sausages. However, the sausages are Polish. Couldn't swear to it though, we need a tefl tesl teacher or a pedant from pedants' corner...
