use chopped onions as an essential flavoring. Stuffings, for example,
require evenly chopped, small pieces.
- Peel the
onion. Cut it in half and set it down on a board. Make lengthways
vertical cuts along it, cutting almost, but not quite through, to
the root. Make two horizontal cuts from the stalk end towards the
root, but not through it.
- Cut the
onion crossways to form small, even dice. This can be done in
advance and kept in a covered bowl in the fridge until required.
