Use this method to cut and peel any sized onion. You can use it for tasty french onion soup

  • Always start with a sharp knife—a dull knife can slip and will mash rather than slice through the onion.
  • Use a chef’s knife, if you have one, rather than a serrated knife, for cleaner cuts.
  • Be sure your cutting board is positioned securely on the counter. If necessary, place a damp kitchen towel underneath to keep the board from sliding around.
  • The bigger and firmer the onion, the easier it will be to cut.

1. Put the (chop) onion on cutting board.
2. Cut an onion in half vertically.

3. Place the two halves "cut side down" on the cutting board.

4. Cut off the unusable portions at the top and bottom of each half.

5. Peel back the top layer of each onion half. Your onion is now completely peeled!
6. Rinse the onion halves under cold water to remove any peel residue. Rinsing also reduces the amount of residue that causes your eyes to water when handling onions.
