RED ONION CHUTNEY
2 quarts of medium cut Julianne red onions
1/4-cup olive oil
2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 teaspoons of black pepper
1/2 teaspoons of Cayenne
1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper
4 oz. of sugar
1/4 cup of vinegar
In a skillet place the oil and heat on a medium flame, or about a six or seven on an electric stove. When oil is hot, add the onions and sauté slowly until they become soft and a little brown.
Turn to low heat.
Add all your seasonings and sauté for a few minutes.
Add sugar and stir in until it has completely dissolved.
Add vinegar and stir in until it's completely incorporated. Continue to cook slowly until onions become sticky and liquid are syrup like consistency.
You should jar and age for a month for optimum flavor.
You may also chill and serve right away.

I love this chutney with crostini and my favorite cheese, Battery Park Brie.
