kitchen Tips
How to Chop Onions:
Cut off the stem end and remove skin from onion. Cut in half through the root end; place halves, cut sides down, on cutting board. Working one half at a time, make three to four horizontal cuts parallel to the cutting board, starting at the stem end and stopping each time before cutting through the root. Continue by making equally spaced vertical cuts perpendicular to the root, again, not cutting through the root. Turn the onion 90 degrees and finish by making cuts perpendicular to the last set of cuts, resulting in perfectly chopped onions. For more information, check out this video.
How to Mince Garlic:
Using the flat edge of chef's knife or the bottom of a heavy skillet, smash down on garlic clove to loosen skin. Remove skin. Cut the peeled garlic clove into thin slices. Then, using chef's knife and holding down tip end, cut back and forth across the garlic until finely minced.
Save Time Peeling Garlic:
Peeling garlic can be a tedious task. To save time, crush the garlic cloves lightly first to loosen the skin, making it easier to remove. Or, check your grocery store for peeled garlic cloves and put your garlic-peeling days behind you for good.
