Kitchen Tip: Peeling Pearl Onions


Pearl Onions can be a pain to peel...unless you know this simple 5-step trick.

Try out your new skill in this side dish: Sherry Vinegar Glazed Pearl Onions.

1. With a paring knife, cut off the tip of the onion opposite the root end.
2. Cook in boiling water 2 minutes. Drain.
3. Let stand until cool enough to handle.
4. Squeeze each onion gently at root end. The onion will pop right out of its skin!
