Red Pearl onions are available year round.
Red Pearl onions are a delicate long-day storage onion variety that resemble the shape of a shallot more than a common onion. They are harvested when their skin has dried to create a protective sheath for its still succulent flesh. They can be stored up to two months in the proper conditions. Pearl onions are purposefully small because they are planted tightly and densely together and picked at their preferred stunted size.
Red Pearl onions have a semi-variegated, dry, papery burgundy skin enveloping a pale purple and translucent flesh. The Red Pearl onion is crisp, savory and slightly pungent in both aroma and flavor.
Pearl onions are ubiquitous as a pickled cocktail onion but they have many other culinary uses. In addition to being a common substitute for boiling onions in soups and stocks they can be charred, roasted and braised. Cover peeled pearl onions with chicken stock or water and cook until liquid has reduced and onions are tender. Combine Pearl onions, Chanterelle mushrooms and chicken in a saute pan, the cook until vegetables and meat are done. Pan-roast onions and halved brussels sprouts on the stove in butter and olive oil, until browned and cooked through. Pearl onions will keep, cool and dry, for up to two months.
