Chopping Onions

March 31, 2011
  1. Trim off the flat top end of the onion, that is opposite the root end.
  2. Chopping the end off an onion
     
  3. Set the onion down on the cut side so it won't roll around. Cut the onion in half lengthwise, through the root end.
  4.  
  5. Peel the outer yellow/brown skin from the onion.
  6.  
  7. Slice through the onion from the root to the cut end, keeping the root end intact. This will hold the onion together and make the rest of the chopping easier.

    Make the slices thinner for a dice.
  8.  

    The onion will look like this now. We spread the onion out a little more then it normally would be so you can see the slices.

     
  9. Make a couple of horizontal cuts from the cut end towards the root end.
  10.  
  11. Chop the onion from the cut end to the root end. Again, cut thinner slices for a dice.
  12.  
  13. Toss the last bit of the root end in the compost or save it for making soup stock later.
  14.

I spend one week a year on onions when harvest time is at hand so I can get the entire process out of the way all at once for the year. I have never had very good luck with storing onions no matter what I tried until I hit on this method, and it sure works for me.

Laziness is the mother of invention. I needed some coarsely chopped onions for chili I was making. Rather than drag out a knife and cutting board, etc, I peeled the onion, put it on a paper towel and pressed my apple slicer down and cut it into wedges, which I dumped into the chili.
