Couldn't find the Chipollini onions, so I had my first pearl onions ever. I had no idea they could taste that good.
I really liked the balsamic vinegar. Nice touch!
Can't wait til Cipollini comes into season this fall. Will definitely try again with or without them.
Costco had bags of Cipollini onions and so I could not pass them up. It took more time that I would normally take for a side dish but they were just delicious and so worth the time. I forced my non onion loving friend to try them and he too was amazed that they were so good. I will make them again, it went perfectly with my grilled flank steak. I did not try the balsamic but may try it next time. Thanks Joe G
I bought a bag of these from Costco awhile back and they were amazing,,, I can't believe that I made it this far in life and have never had these before! Everyone I cooked for raved about them. However, I hope it was not a "once-in-a-lifetime" event, since I have not been able to find them again. We check in every Costco, and every grocery store we go into, but nada. Most grocers we speak to seem to have no idea what we are talking about. :-(
Yes, like most good things in life, cipollini onions are not always available year round. They are more of an autumn to fall onion. If you are lucky to find them off season, they can be a bit more expensive as well.
In the past, I have had some luck at stores like Safeway. Glad you liked them Leigh. Cheers!
Not hard at all and so yummy! Served this at a dinner party with carrots and parsnips, roasted asparagus and tenderloin with a peppercorn cream sauce. I loved it, because you normally wouldn't be served this in a home. Also, I didn't think it took an hour (more like 30 minutes). I had the good fortune of my husband peeling them. :)
I've been looking every time and every where I shop for over a year now, and still haven't been able to find Cipollini onions a second time. I hope that cooking these wasn't just a once-in-a-lifetime event for me. Even when I ask the produce managers if they carry them, I just get blank stares!
We were doing shish-kabobs for a BBQ one summer. Looking to grab some onions to chop up, and a bag of these little gems was sitting right there. We grabbed them because their size was perfect for the kabobs. Low and behold I wish I never found them, because now I have a hard time finding them again. I know what I am missing, and I want more!
