FAQs about cipollini onions
The cipollini's thin skin can be challenging to remove. Use a paring knife to gently pull off strips of skin from the stem down to the root. Alternatively, put the onions into boiling water for just a few seconds to loosen the skin. Allow them to cool so that you don't burn your hands before peeling away the loosened skin.
For such a small vegetable, cipollini onions really pack a punch in the nutrition department. Cipollinis are chock full of vitamins A and B complex as well as potassium, calcium, and a hefty dose of vitamin C. They are also an excellent source of fiber, offering double the fiber as a one-cup serving of kidney beans with many fewer calories.
Like other onion family members, cipollinis are thought to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties important to overall health and maintenance.
Cipollinis originated in the small town of Boretto, Italy, in the 15th century. They were originally cultivated for domestic production and consumption and became wider spread as Italian immigrants departed for other parts of the world. Today, cipollinis are grown worldwide in regions with Mediterranean climates that enable these special onions to thrive.
