I have a horrible time trying to get the perfect even thin sliced onions…I can’t stand to sit there and slave away over them as it is. Tears are always streaming down my face, my nose is running because of that nasty onion let me make you sob like a baby joy you get. We’ve all been there. Don’t deny it. Some onions are worse than others. There are two things I do to help this…..
Number 1: If I need chopped onions, I add a little water to a food chopper and throw in some onions. Then I can just put it in the fridge for a few days and use it as needed. Just beware that the smell is super strong as it sits in the fridge. I wouldn’t leave it more than 2 or 3 days though before using. I’m not even sure how long it will last otherwise, I usually use it up pretty quick. I do 1-2 onions at a time.
Number 2: This is my favorite tip. If you cut your onion in half, in fours, whatever you need..then you slice it like I am in the photo above, with a vegetable peeler! YES folks, a veggie peeler! It works and it gives you pretty little strings of onions. Enjoy!
