Tesco Borettane Onions In Balsamic Vinegar come in a large glass jar with a jam jar style lid and within the jar there are many medium sized onions which are held in balsamic vinegar. The jar is one that I instantly recognise on the Tesco shelf now and it's a good size to store in the door of the fridge or just keep in the cupboard dependant on the temperature that you like your onions to be at although it is advised that you refrigerate these after use.
These onions are the perfect size to be used as an accompaniment to many dishes and the size of them makes them ideal to be eaten whole or just chopped in half. The onions themselves are lovely and crunchy and have a delicious sweetness to them. The vinegar that they are stored in helps to flavour them and they are perfect chopped in a salad for a different flavour or on the side of a portion of fish & chips. They are even a great item to have available for tea parties and the like as they are a firm favourite with many people.
The quality of the onions is fantastic and this is the reason that I am always willing to pay a little more for this version compared to some other versions. A 300g jar is currently £1.15 in Tesco stores or from www.tesco.com and I think that this is a very reasonable price for a tasty snack that I enjoy with a variety of meals. When on special offer these are usually sold at 2 jars for £1.50.
I have been known to eat these alone in the past and I think that these onions are something that you either love or hate and once I started to buy them I haven't been able to stop as they are just so tasty and go great with my lunch or just for something to nibble on when I'm bored and want to be healthy. A 100g serving of these onions contains just 41 calories so can be eaten without any guilt.
When I have finished with the onions I usually pour the balsamic vinegar in to my vinegar bottle and then have delicious sugary sweet balsamic vinegar free of charge and this makes these onions even better value for money as I've used the vinegar in cooking.
There is a long sell by date on these onions so even if you just have yourself to cater to then they'll keep you going for a fair while!
I would highly recommend these onions for anybody who wants a tasty snack and yet wants to still be healthy. They go great with many meals and have a delicious sweetness to them that just can't be beaten. I am rating these onions 5/5 and will continue to buy them (especially when they are on special offer).
