Anyone know a less hateful method of peeling cippoline onions than small end cuts and clumsy wasteful brute force??

A quick dunk - 1-2mins - in boiling water.

blanch them for 10 seconds in rapidly boiling water. this soften the skins and make them much easier to remove, though it works even better if you trim the root first.

I find that peeling the papery skin off after dunking them in water helps.. & i 'scoop the pointer tip off using the end a grapefruit segmenting tool.

Do I dare post this? I saw a bag of them, already prepared in the market today. Didn't buy, but could be tempted.
