    GTood place for "practical no frills stuff"

    For sure re-use jars stooboy. I find if I can build up a "stock" of similar size ones though, replacement lids are cheap as anything - the jars last practically forever!

    Bumping this because I have a mahoosive onion crop this year - so there is a large pan of onion chutney on the range fighting for space with the water bath canner that is preserving rhubarb in syrup :)

    Well, with this warm winter onions are not keeping as they should :(

    I did 3 dozen jars of onion soup a couple of weeks back - today I'm using up a couple of trays making caramalised onion chutney. I waited till BB set off for her weeks work though - she has sensitive eyes. Mine seem immune these days - 18 large onions finely diced, two pints of boiling vinegar - not a tear shed :)

    In another thread, I said:

    OMG! I've still got the caramelised onion chutney to make first. But we did get offered apples the other day......

    ...
    and today I had time, poor weather, and the ingredients to make a full batch. Some 4 hours later, we have many small jars of lovely caramelised onion chutney cooling on the kitchen window sill. Thanks again BR!

    Can you make the case for using a dehydrator for onion slices?

    I do it all the time. I dry and then grind the dried onion to a powder. A couple of tbs in bread, add to chilli, Bolognese and stews. Its wonderful

    For those who like their pickles and chutneys we are gradually transferring all the recipes to video since Flickr want to charge us for photo hosting. Here is the caramalised onion recipe in that format

    I'm so glad you said about the bolted onions. I was not sure if I could use them for anything. Now I know I can use them. Thanks.
