Ingredients & Notes
The key ingredients for this chutney are red onions and raspberries and there are a few other ingredients that make this fruity and tangy chutney come together perfectly:
- lemon zest
- sea salt
- apple cider vinegar
- balsamic vinegar
- maple syrup
I'm not normally big fan of raisins myself, there are, however, a few exceptions - and one of them is this raspberry chutney! The raisins get totally immersed in the flavor of the raspberry and red onion chutney and add a lovely thicker texture to it, as well as some natural sweetness.
For the special tang of this chutney, lemon zest, apple cider vinegar, and balsamic vinegar are coming together deliciously - and form the perfect counterbalance to the sweetness of the red onions, raspberries and maple syrup, making this homemade red onion chutney recipe absolutely divine!
How to Make Raspberry Red Onion Chutney
The steps for creating this delicious chutney recipe are very simple and straightforward:
Step 1: Caramelize the onions
The thinly sliced onions are added to a medium-size saucepan alongside a little oil and cooked for a few minutes until they start to become translucent and begin to caramelize. This should take about 5-6 minutes.
Add the remainder of the ingredients (leaving out the raspberries) to the saucepan and cook until the onions are completely softened and all ingredients well incorporated - for about 4-5 minutes.
Step 2: Adding the raspberries
Lastly, add the raspberries to the saucepan and stir until they begin to break down. Cook everything on low/medium heat stirring regularly to reduce the liquid. This should take about 25 minutes.
Step 3: Storage
Once the red onion chutney is thickened, it's ready! Remove the saucepan from the heat and store it in a jar or airtight container in the fridge and used it within 2 weeks.

How to Serve Onion Chutney
I love to serve this chutney on fresh, toasted bread, alongside vegan cheese.
It is also a wonderful addition to a vegan cheeseboard. If that's your kinda thing, then you might also want to try making your own crackers alongside, such as these Easy Vegan Apple Crackers or Sweet Potato Crackers.
And if you're looking for a fantastic vegan cheese cause to serve, drizzle and dip alongside, then definitely give this Ultimate Vegan Cheese Sauce a go.
