Today I have peeled and chopped 15kg of red onions

It was for making Red Onion Marmalade.
I do love the finished product, but dear me, the smell is dreadful. Both the cut onions and then the boiling vinegar for 3 or 4 hours…
It is a popular product, so it is worth the effort, but I dread making it.
I actually ran out of jars for it today, so tried to order some more only to find my regular supplier (who has recently been taken over) has run out of jars of the right size.
As an interim measure I’ve ordered some from Amazon, but will need to research a cost effective long term solution if the old supplier is going to stop supplying those particular jars.

Sounds like you need your 'customers' to recycle more of those jars back in your direction.
Well done to you for suffering the work snd smells for the joy the finished product will bring. :-)

Can’t you recycle jars? A friend makes interesting pickles and that’s what she uses. Reply

Good for you I love onion marmalade but I don’t make it as I am the only one who eats it. Hope you get your jars. Reply

When I used to pickle onions & shallots I used to peel them outside but that's no good for the lingering smell of cooked vinegar unless you have a camping stove. Reply

Something for me to think about making :D :D sounds yummy; I've a large bucket of plums to turn into plum jam & chutney over the next 2 weeks; good luck with the jars, I keep the jars that come with the mustard and other things I buy :) Reply

My husband makes red onion marmalade but in small quantities so the aroma isn't overpowering.
Hope the jar issue is resolved quickly.
