Cipollini onions (pronounced chip-oh-lee-knee) were once a rare treat only to be found at fancy restaurants and the occasional gourmet market. Their name literally means “little onion” in Italian, and they are about the size of a golf ball with a slightly flattened appearance. They’re thin-skinned and have translucent white flesh with more residual sugar than the average yellow or white onion, making them incredible for roasting or carmelizing.
