Easily Peel Pearl Onions

Submitted by susan

Pearl onions have a much more pungeant flavor than regular onions, but many of us are loath to cook with them because they're so tiresome to peel. No more!

Trim both ends, and score each end with a shallow X. Bring a pot of water to boil and add the onions; cook for about two minutes. Drain, cool, and easily slip the skins off the onions.
