I like to keep an onion on hand to use when needed for a recipe. This is an easy way to remove the peeling.
Hate to peel little pearl onions? Try this: Boil a pot of water. While waiting for it to boil, cut a bit off the top and bottom (root end) of each onion. Drop onions in the boiling water and blanch for just 2 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Then, simply squeeze and the peeled onion will pop out slick as a whistle.

Is there any easy way to peel silver skin onions?

You can try this technique: place the onion on its side, and very thinly slice off the root & tip of the onion from either side. then place the onion on its flat base.
