Until this recipe I had never cooked with pearl onions. They are a bit of effort to remove the skins but can come off rather quickly with this method.
- Slice off ends and place pearl onions in boiling or hot water and then cool. The skins should easily peel off.
My friend had some leftover fresh herbs that I used to season the onions. I just used the entire stalk of herb and then removed before serving. If you prefer, you can chop the herbs before cooking and leave in the dish.
