frozen pearl onions--yyc

Does anyone know where to buy pre-peeled frozen pearl onions in Calgary? (I have a great recipe for beef burgundy that asks for them). I've found fresh in some stores but am having a hard time finding frozen.

Thanks very much.

  1. I have never seen them in Calgary. I have many recipes/cookbooks that are American and call for the frozen ones all the time. But I've never found them.

    I bought fresh, boiled them lightly, removed skins and then froze on a cookie sheet. When frozen I dumped in a ziplock for future use. A big pain, I know. But I usually do a few net bags when they are cheap at the farmer's market and make then last all winter.
