- Peel and quarter the onions, put them into the blender jug and, with the measuring beaker in place, chop for 5 seconds/speed setting 5. The onions should still be chunky. If you like, you can continue to chop them a little more, if desired.
- Use the spatula to scrape down the inside of the blender jug, add the butter and sugar and, the measuring beaker not inserted, sauté with the roast button/4 minutes.
- Add the vinegar, grape juice and bay leaf and, the measuring beaker not inserted, cook with the reverse button/25 minutes/speed setting 1/100 °C.
- Remove the bay leaf and, the measuring beaker not inserted, briefly stir in the honey with the reverse button/1 minute/speed setting 2. To keep the onion jam for a reasonable length of time, pour it into sterilised screw-top jars while still hot, seal well and stand them upside down for 5 minutes. Then allow to cool to room temperature.
If the jam is for adults only, instead of using fruit vinegar, use dark balsamic vinegar and red wine instead of grape juice. This onion jam makes a charming homemade gift when presented attractively.
