Cut any large potatoes in half. In a large saucepan cook potatoes in a small amount of boiling salted water for 10 minutes; drain. Cook onions in boiling salted water for 5 minutes; drain and rinse in cool water. Trim off stem end of each onion; pop off skins with fingers. Thread potatoes and onions alternately on six 12-inch skewers. Place in a shallow nonaluminium baking dish.
