Black Currant Onions

Have you ever tasted onions marinated in black currant vinegar? If not, you need to search you pantry for the ingredients in this entry, and then go buy  the remaining ingredients. The black currant vinegar might be difficult to find in the super market and on top of that it is quite expensive, so we make it our selves – and it is sooooo easy 😀


Black Currant Vinegar

2 cups white wine vinegar

1 pound black currant

4 tbsp. cane sugar


Dissolve the sugar in the vinegar. Mash the berries slightly with a fork and place them in a clean jar and pour the vinegar over. Close the jar, shake it a few times and set a side for 2 days.

Shift the vinegar through an unbleached canvas to avoid that the berries get into the finished vinegar.

Store in an air tight container for up to 2 month (in our household it only survives a few weeks :-D).

Now you that you have bought or made your own vinegar, you are ready to make the best marinated onions in the entire world!


Black Currant Onions

2 red onions

1 cup black currant vinegar

1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 tbsp. honey




Slice (or chop) the onions and place in a clean jar.

Combine vinegar, oil and honey and stir until the honey has dissolved. Taste and season with salt and pepper if you find it necessary.

Pour the marinate over the sliced onions and seal the jar. Fridge for at least 4-5 hours and up to 2 weeks. If you use the onions within a few days, you can easily re-use the marinate 🙂

These onions are so delicious, and we often use them in both salads, in sandwiches, together with a steak or as side dish for tapas.


Bon Appétit!
