I have an onion complex. Onions are never in short supply at our house. I think they make everything taste better; except dessert, I haven’t found a way to put those together.. YET 😉
Here’s a video on how to easily dice an onion and some really helpful onion tips!
Watch How To Chop an Onion:
I recently discovered that onions are considered a super food. Oh heck yeah! That’s especially exciting because onion is a staple in Russian cuisine; baked, stewed, broiled, boiled, tossed into salads, sautéed, seared, marinated, and even raw with a bit of salo (not that I eat salo, but it is customary in Russia and Ukraine).
Salo probably cancels out the superfood onion though, so forget that last part. This means I probably won’t be making a salo tutorial. Please stop crying.
How to Chop an Onion:
On choosing the right onion, here’s a quick reference from the video:
Small Onion = 4 oz (1/4 lb) = 1/2 cup chopped
Medium Onion = 8 oz (1/2 lb) = 1 cup chopped
Large Onion = 12 oz (3/4 lb) = 1 1/2 cups chopped
Jumbo Onion = 16 oz (1 lb) = 2 cups chopped
I’ll do my best to stay on track with this chart and minimize confusion (my mom grows plenty of onions for the whole family and those can come in cute extra small and extra extra small sizes too 😉 ).
