Most people know who Erma was--a humorist who published a column and at least 15 books about suburban life as a homemaker. The poor woman is deceased, so we can't call her up and ask her why she said to slice the water chestnuts. I'm pretty sure you can buy them sliced, so did she mean to dice them? We will never know! Just do the best you can!
