recipe for carmelised shallots, raisins etc...supposedly Spanish

Magnolia | Jan 23, 2001 09:51 AM

At London's Borough Market last Saturday there was a new vendor of chutneys, jams, mustards etc. - yummy condiments in glass jars.

Anyway, I have all the jam and marm I need thank you, crystallising away in my fridge. But the vendor was quite aggressive ("almost like an American" said my shopping companion) and wouldn't take no for an answer.

So we purchased a cup of carmelised shallots & raisins ...which she claimed was from a Spanish recipe. It's regrettable that I wasn't paying much attention (but I do recall hearing something about a bit of red wine and some vinegar) because we had it for dinner and it turned out to be a little bit of heaven. The kind of thing that could get addictive. It didn't come cheap, either. But I bet it's easy. A nervous novice, however, I am not yet comfortable just throwing stuff together and voila!
Anyone know what this could be called, and how to make it?
If not I will try to squidge the recipe out of her in a couple of weeks...
