Caramelized Pearl Onions

To peel pearl onions easily, slice off the root ends and drop into boiling water for less than a minute. Drain and rinse with cold water. Pinch the stem end of each, and a peeled onion will pop out. When they're in the skillet, shake the onions frequently for even browning.
