Onion Compote

I made this compote for frankfurters and it made such a big difference to the meal. My husband practically walloped those hot dogs with this delicious compote on top. It can also be used on burgers, steaks and sandwiches.

8 red or white onions
4 tbs balsamic vinegar
2 tbs brown sugar

1. Slice up with onions to thin rings. Fry on low heat in a frying pan until softened. This could take up to 30 mins.
2. Add the balsamic vinegar when they are slowly turning brown. Cook for another 20 mins under low heat.
3. Add the brown sugar and keep on cooking for another 25 mins- you can continue as long as you like, but I found mine to be the consistency I wanted after this time.
4. Serve on top of a frankfurter with pickles and jalepenos.
