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. As it cooked, the wedges separated into pieces, coarsely chopped. No mess and about 15 seconds of work!
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.
