 ½ tsp ground dry mustard

Shallowly cut the root end off of each onion so it can sit flat. Peel and discard the skins. Using a sharp knife, gently slice in 5ths, as if you were cutting a pie, about three quarters down through the onion revealing 10 sections, keeping the root intact. Soak the onions in a bowl of ice water for 30 minutes to help spread the sections. Transfer onions to a paper towel and remove excess water.
