Dicing onions does not
need to be a tedious task.
00:00:05.820 --> 00:00:10.310
I'm Janey Claiborne and I'm gonna show you
how to dice an onion like a professional.
00:00:10.310 --> 00:00:13.070
First thing we're gonna do is
we're gonna cut this tip off.
00:00:13.070 --> 00:00:15.642
Once that's off,
we're gonna cut this in half.
00:00:15.642 --> 00:00:21.536
[SOUND] So, at this point we can peel
the outer skin off of our onion.
00:00:21.536 --> 00:00:25.937
Wonderful, I'm going to slice
this onion into three sections.
00:00:25.937 --> 00:00:30.857
And now, you can cut right down.
00:00:30.857 --> 00:00:33.117
Make sure to protect those fingers.
00:00:33.117 --> 00:00:37.397
I'm using my left hand sort of,
to keep everything in place.
00:00:37.397 --> 00:00:42.240
Now I, all I have to do is slice down, and
00:00:42.240 --> 00:00:48.378
I have these perfectly diced,
pieces of my onion.
00:00:48.378 --> 00:00:52.417
And since I have this little bit
of skin hanging off at the end,
00:00:52.417 --> 00:00:55.458
this is really helping
me hold it all in place.
00:00:55.458 --> 00:00:59.719
Now, your perfectly diced onion
can be sauteed, added to sauces,
00:00:59.719 --> 00:01:01.900
or whatever else you have in mind.
00:01:01.900 --> 00:01:07.499
