How to Braid Onions and Garlic step 1Braiding Onions: Step 1

You'll need 13 onions for this project. This technique will work with cloves of garlic, too.

Trim the roots of the onions to about an inch long and gently brush off any soil clinging to the bulbs.

Choose the three largest onions for the bottom of the braid.

Position one onion at the top and the two other large onions slightly below and to each side of the first bulb.
