The Perfect Low-Sugar Condiment For Pastries, Cold Cuts, Cheese & More

This incredible chutney showcases the sweetness of the onion at their best. By slowly cooking your onion (and a few chopped herbs) down over 20-30 min, you end up with caramel-brown, sticky sweet onions. This is accentuated by adding a couple of spoons of erythritol sweetener and a similar amount of cider vinegar, to give you a sweet and sour flavour to the chutney. Finish with a good amount of salt and pepper.

Chutneys have a tendency to be sugar and carb-laden - Onion chutneys even more so! By using sweetener instead of sugar you can drastically reduce the carbs in this particular condiment.
