I love onions. Like seriously love them. I must be part oger or something. I made Char's Roasted Potatoes the other night and decided to throw some pearl onions in the mix. You can usually find pearl onions in the freezer section at your grocery store - not so at my local mart - but they did have them in the produce section - the package I bought also came with instructions on how to easily peel them.
To peel them - put them in boiling water for approx. 3 minutes drain and rinse in cold water. Cut off the ends and the outer layer will come right off.
When you roast these onions, they become very sweet - and actually don't taste like a 'onion' at all. Super delish - definitely doing that again!!
