What is it?

Cipollini onions (pronounced chip-oh-Lee-nee) are small, flat-shaped spheres. Popular in Italy, they are starting to catch on in the U.S. They have a well developed flavor that’s a little sweet. Traditionally served whole in Italian sweet and sour sauce, they are also good marinated and pickled. They are also delicious roasted whole.

Don’t have it?

You can substitute pearl onions.

How to choose:

Buy firm bulbs with no soft spots, bruises, or other signs of damage. The necks should be tightly closed. They should be heavy for their size, with dry, papery skins.

How to prep:

Peel before using.

How to store:

Keep in a cool, dry, well-ventilated spot.
