Slicing Onions for Onion Soup

CindyJ | Sep 30, 2009 07:51 AM

When slicing onions for making onion soup, how should the onions be sliced -- pole to pole or crosswise? In the past, I've used the slicing disk of my food processor to slice the onions crosswise. But now I'm thinking this might be a mistake -- that they'll have better consistency, and maybe even taste better after caramelization if I slice them lengthwise, pole to pole. What are your thoughts?
