Makes 3 x 1lb jars  l  Difficulty: easy  l  Prep time: 35min  l  Total time: 1h30


INGREDIENTS
3 tablespoon olive oil

10oz muscovado sugar
7oz red wine vinegar
3 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard

Duck magret slices, smoked

STEPS
1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and gently fry the onions over low heat for 25-30 minutes until softened but not browned. 

2. Stir in 3 tbsp sugar, increase the heat and cook for 3-4 minutes, until the onions are browned, then add the remaining sugar and all the other ingredients (but the duck magret slices).

3. Simmer gently for 45 minutes to an 1 hour until the liquid has reduced and the mixture has thickened and become a dark caramel color.

4. Spoon the chutney into appetizer spoons or small dishes and top off with a piece of duck magret. Enjoy! 

Cook's note: this chutney can be stored for 6-12 months into cooled, sterilised jars, then seal and label.
