To Slice the Onion
Step 1: Peel the skin off the Onion.
Step 2: Cut the Onion in half and remove both ends.
Step 3: If you’re right handed, use the front part of your fingers from your left hand to guide your knife down the Onion while you’re slicing through it. Perfect slices!

To Dice the Onion
Step 1: Peel the skin off the Onion.
Step 2: Cut the Onion in half and remove only the top, leaving the root end intact (this will hold the Onion together then you dice).
Step 3: Make one or two horizontal cuts down the center of the Onion (depending size).
Step 4: Using your slice technique, make cuts through 9/10 of the Onion.
Step 5: Rotate the Onion 90° and start slicing. Perfect dice every time!

Bonus Tip: Save and freeze the tops and bottoms of the Onion for the next time you make a Stock!
