As quite a few recipes ask for diced onion I thought that I’d have to give it a try. It looks easy when the TV chefs dice while talking so it can’t be that hard. Or can it? In spite of some help from Google and YouTube things were still messy with odd bits onion everywhere and it didn’t look at all like the results from the TV chefs. Since I’d tried everything else the only other thing to do was to blame the tools that I was using. So I went out to buy a new knife.

An onion success

Every time that a recipe calls for diced onions I can now add perfectly diced onions. This is because on the way back from buying the new knife I went into Waitrose to buy some frozen vegetables. It was then that I saw the real My Inherited Kitchen style of solution – frozen diced onions.  They are great. Add as much or as little as you need without having to perform surgery on a whole onion. I’m sure that I’ll find another use for the knife.
