How to slice an onion (video)

Here is another remake.

I owe the trick of nicking the outer layers of the onion with a knife to make peeling easier to one of my youngest students, Connor Goggins.   Thanks Connor!

Videos you might want to watch before this one:

If you want to practice slicing onions (2 Lb or more), I suggest you caramelize them. I can't think of a savory dish that would not be better with caramelized onions: tarts, pizzas, meats, pastas, sandwiches. For example, add caramelized onions to a plain grilled cheese and your family will beg you for more. They might even volunteer to do dishes if you promise to feed them this sandwich every week.
