Cutting Onions Tear Free Tip

Tip 1: 

Cut off the ends of an onion and peel it, then give it a short soak in a bowl of water (15 minutes).

The theory is this draws out the sulphuric compounds from the onion surfaces into the water. However, this also results in a milder-tasting onion.

Tip 2: 

Put the onion in the freezer for about 15 minutes before cutting it.

This has been a proven good method foryears, compare to other methods. The theory with this one is the cold inhibits the onions’ release of its eye-irritating chemicals.
