Cry less… with Onions! (Tips!)
1. Use a sharp Knife:
A sharp knife ruptures fewer onion cells, and so less tears!
2. Chill em!
Chilling the onion few mins before chopping will cause less evaporation, less gas, and less tears!
3. Soak ‘em!
Soak the onions in water, this eliminates any gas from escaping into the air, and will therefore eliminate the eye irritation problem - but frying wet onions can be messy!
