        My friend and I did an experiment. We made three batches of marmalade, each using a different recipe (BBC Good Food, Delia and this recipe). We could not believe that a recipe this simple one could be any good, but we have to report that it was the best! Horray for simplicity.

          1. Fry the onions in the butter until lightly browned. Add the sugar and cook until dark and caramelised.

          2. Add the vinegar and simmer until it reaches a thick jam like consistency (about 45 minutes)
