Because I do not like raw onions, I avoided cooking with them for years. I have since learned to love cooked onions when I realized what a difference they make in so many dishes.
But I still do not like to cut onions. I can’t stand the pain and tears. So many times I’ve tried to chop through an onion as quickly as humanly possible to avoid the stinging eyes and almost cut off a finger in the process.
I know there are lots of tricks out there for avoiding this. Honestly, I have never tried any of them. I guess I like to think I’m tough like that and will learn to just get over it someday.
Now I am throwing in the towel though. I’ve had enough. If you have any tips that have worked for you to keep the tears away while chopping onions, please let me know. I’d love to try them out.
