Red Onion Blackcurrant Sausage Glaze

It’s finally time to dust off the BBQ, remove the rain covers and get down to some good old summer cooking in the garden. Obviously, I say this with the caveat that these rubs, glazes and pesto’s all work great from the oven as well.


  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 red onions, finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 4 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 150g semi dried cherries or cranberries
  • 200mls Ribena or Cassis
  • 200mls water
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • Heat the oil and add the sliced onions and garlic powder, then cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the vinegar, fruit, Ribena or Cassis, and enough water to just cover the onions.
  • Simmer gently for 15 minutes with a lid on so onions soften.
  • Spoon about a third of the mix into a liquidiser, and blitz til smooth.
  • The left over mix season well with salt and pepper and vinegar.
  • Use the glaze to paint on grilled sausages or meats 5-6 minutes before the end of grilling to glaze nicely, and then serve the rest of the onions as a relish.
