"These are delicious! Doubting husband and son munched them down. Tip shown in magazine: when using fresh pearl onions cook in boiling water for 2 minutes; drain & plunge into ice water; pinch the root end and the peel will easily slip off. <--actually works (couldn't find frozen)!"

"An excellent side for ham. My family are not big onion fans, but there was nothing left after dinner!"
