Fresh Cipollini Onions with Tops

From: Holmquest Farm (Integrated Pest Management) in Hudson, NY

These onions are thin-skinned and have more sugar than your average onion. This makes them incredible for roasting or caramelizing. Roasted whole in the oven or cooked in a little butter on the stove top, Cipollinis become soft and practically melt in your mouth. Those sugars caramelize and concentrate, leaving behind none of the astringent raw onion flavor. Even the onion-haters out there might be swayed!
