2- 2. [ cutting crosswise ] cutting onion’s fiber(or whatever that’s running lengthwise) meaning,,, it gets much easier to come out onion’s flavor. POINT-ENG

*If you are making salad and you want to remove its sharpness, I would recommend cutting crosswise. slice crosswise and soak in water can wash off sharpness much easily. *Making French onion gratin (Onion soup) will be also the same idea. Stir fry thinly crosswise sliced onion can easily release its flavor. in this case,, sweetness.

2- 3. [ cutting lengthwise ] cut along with onion’s fiber. meaning,, keeping onion’s structure. POINT-ENG

*If you are making stir-fried vegetable and want to enjoy crunchiness, cut it lengthwise and use high heat to cook in short time. *If you are making stew and don’t want to dissolve onion while simmering, cutting lengthwise can hold onions structure longer.
