How to Prepare Onions

Onions are sweet, savory, and pungent all at once, adding extra depth to any dish.


  1. Peel onion skin. Cut off the top.
  2. Lay on flat end and slice in half through the root. 
  3. Lay one half flat. Hold root and cut long slits, leaving the root intact. 
  4. Rotate onion and cut across into a small dice. Discard root. Repeat with other half.

Here’s a delicious recipe you can try at home.
