Sometimes it’s the little kitchen tasks that are the most tiresome. Tedious kitchen jobs like peeling carrots, separating eggs, and peeling onions try our patience. It doesn’t help that onions are an essential flavour-boosting ingredient in most of our favourite dishes. Red onion adds heat to flavourful carnitas tacos, sweet Vidalia onions provide balance to acidic Bolognese, and spring onions deliver a crunchy bite to Greek salads. Unfortunately, the papery onion skin always slips through our fingers, making this menial task take much too long.
Once your onion is peeled, you can resume cooking your regularly scheduled recipe.
