Comes in a variety of gold, red and white. Pearl onions are smaller than boiler onions and contain a sweet, mild flavor. The reds are the sweetest, but the whites are the most popular variety. Whether creamed, glazed or added to a stew, pearl onions are mildly sweet, plump, bite-sized morsels that are so tasty and convenient.
Look for pearl onions that are firm, heavy for their size, and have dry, papery skins. When selecting pearl onions, avoid any signs of moisture, green shoots or dark spots. Keep in mind that humidity breeds spoilage in dry onions.
To store whole pearl onions, keep in a cool, dry place with good air circulation for up to two months.
