I can cut up an onion very fast, but it always brings tears to my eyes.
I have froze the onion but it makes it mushy. Does anyone have any suggestions?

My wife swears by a lit candle… light a candle and have it near where you are cutting the onion… I never have trouble with tears from onions myself.

Don’t cute off the root end. Since reading this in Tast of Home, I don’t cry anymore when I chopped onions.

After peeling the onion, I rinse it under cold running water. This seems to stop the “fumes/gas” (lol) from burning my eyes. :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks guys, I will try these. Cold water does seem to help a little bit, the candle thing is very interesting. :smiley:
