how-to-cut-an-onion-without-crying-sm Seriously, I cry pools of tears when cutting onions.  Sniff, sniff. I LOVE onions — but HATE crying for no good reason. 😉 As a child, I could be in a completely different room and still shed tears when my parents chopped onions. I’ve tried different methods to prevent crying… and this one I have not tried yet, but definitely will. – Light a candle near where you’re peeling and chopping your onion. (Evidently, the flames burn the onion juices from the air.) *Credit Source:  I got this idea from here:

What methods have YOU used to prevent crying while peeling onions?  Do tell!

I’ve also heard of these methods for cutting onions without the tears:

– Peel your onion and chop near running water. – Make sure to keep your mouth closed while chopping your onion. –  Slice an onion from the root end. – Stick them in a freezer for a short while before slicing. – Bribe a friend to do it for you.  (hee hee!)

Perhapsonion goggles would work best?
