Cipolline Borettane is an Italian pearl onion that has a flat, saucer-like shape. These onions are delicious—mild and sweet in flavor when they’re cooked. These ones from Casa Rinaldi are marinated in rich balsamic vinegar from Modena, Italy, allowing the sweetly acidic flavor of the vinegar to absorb into the onions until they become softer.
You can serve the Casa Rinaldi Borettane Onions in Basamic Vinegar as antipasti. Or you can use them in your paninis; they’re great with goat cheese. You can also serve them with fish, veal, or beef dishes.
Casa Rinaldi as a company was birthed from a passion for Traditional Balsamic Vinegar, for which Modena is known. Its name is taken from the 1888 building owned by the Rinaldi family, which served as a vinegar factory. The building stands to this day, and is both an active component, being used in the company’s production, and a metaphorical marker—a reminder of tradition and quality.
