Caramelised Onion Balsamic Compote
Caramelised onion balsamic compote is a serious contender for onion chutney on your cheeseboard.
There’s much more to this compote than just sweetness. The acidity cuts through a creamy brie or goats’ cheese, while the distinct onion flavour goes brilliantly with a sharp cheddar.
The caramelised balsamic compote is also a great addition to an onion gravy, or simply serve as a condiment with roast beef.
Officinae Defrutum balsamic vinegars and condiments are made on a family-run farm in Modena, in the heart of the Emilia-Romagna region. They are made only with Trebbiano and Lambrusco grapes that are grown in the farm’s surrounding vineyards, so the entire production is closed cycle. Emilia-Romagna’s climate of extremes – very hot summers and freezing winters – provides the best conditions for fermenting and maturing balsamic vinegar. The production and ageing methods have been passed down through four generations of balsamic vinegar makers.
Ingredients: onions (210g for 100g of final product), sugar, Balsamic Vinegar of Modena (wine vinegar, cooked grape must) (15%).
