There are some interesting tips here, Nade - though sorry, no machine ! laugh

"You don't spell it, you feel it" (Pooh).

plunging them into boiling water for a few seconds and then straining them usual makes the task much easier.

Yes, Jan, I think that's one of the tips included, but I think Martin's nearer the mark !!!  big_laugh

I know of industrial sized machines, but I can't say I have come across a small home version before. I did a google search bit nothing jumped out as being for home use.

Didn't know they needed peeling, they come in jars straight from nature don't they?

Aly, I think one of these   whistle  should be included in your response!  laugh

My Dad used to make the best pickled onions - and he used to fill those giant sweetjars,

"killed all known germs"  - they were pretty strong ..
