I took Belladonna back to school yesterday. We swung by a grocery store on the way there.
While in the produce department, she asked, "Which bag of onions should I get?"
I told her to pick the bag with the largest onions in it.
She asked "Why?"
I told her that there is less waste with larger onions.
But is it true?
I think it is true from a couple of different standpoints. It takes more time to peel and chop small onions than to peel and chop large onions. Not on a per-onion basis, but on a per-unit of chopped onions.
|The average width of the seven outer layers was 3.5mm (0.140 inches)|
|Horizontal axis is "Inches diameter". Vertical axis is Percent waste. Outer layer assumed to be 0.140" thick.|
