Cipollini onions are small Italian onions approximately the size of a golf ball. They have a thin skin, white flesh and a flattened appearance. Cipollini onions have more residual sugar than other types of onions, which give them a sweeter taste.
To peel cipollini onions, soak the onions in boiling water, drain, trim off the ends and peel off the outer layer. After the onions are peeled, cut and cook as desired.
Customers may find cipollini onions in their local grocery stores or through online shopping sites, like Amazon. Cipollinis are not the same as yellow cooking onions, so customers may need to ask the produce manager to point them out or order them.
