Dicing an Onion

Dear Lissy,
Sharp quality knives and good knife technique are essential!  This video teaches both the classic onion dicing technique (including the flying hand option) and an onion "cheat" that's great for younger cooks.

Happy cooking!


  1. I missed the pinch and whatever technique – but onions are scary and they do make me cry. Ohhhh – cut the stem first. Hmm. And the soaking thing – if that works I will admit to the existence of magic. And the final decision – I’ll use my little miracle chopper – I just can’t cut with the big knife and my fingers so close – eeeeek. I hearted this acturally. {smiling} – looking for spiritual analogies – I think I see a potential post here :)

    God Bless and keep you Rebecca
    May His face shine upon you…
    and all of yours.

  2. This is my first time visiting your blog, and what a wonderful thing you are doing for your daughter! (And for the rest of us, too :)
