Do you hate onions?

I can't eat them they make me gag no matter what, and my MIL makes fun of me about it, my DH and DD don't like them either. Are there very few onion haters or more than you would think?

  • I can't stand raw onions but cooked, they are ok. I don't really like to eat them at all but I do like to use them for flavor... I think I understand how you feel though, I used to gag if I ate raw onion, like if Taco Bell put them on something when I told them not to. No one should make fun of you though. I HATE beets (they smell like dirt) and my DH loves them - we joke about it but would never make fun.

  • No, I absolutely love onions! I could eat one like an apple. But, most people I know hate them and my family hates them, so I can't really cook with them all the time like I'd like to :(

  • Onions and garlic are very good for one's health. They aid with circulation and are good for the heart. Refrigerating them cuts down on the crying when you cut them.

  • When I was a kid, I didnt' like onions, now I like them cooked, but not raw on a sandwich or something. My kids, all of them, don't really like them, and if I do cook with them I have to sneak them in! lol

  • I love garlic can't do onions. They will make me throw up. I know they are good for me but I would have to be dying to eat them.

  • Almost everything I cook has onions in it. I love onions. I will eat them cooked but not raw. A lot of people on DH's side of the family hate onions and always talk about their hate for onions, but they love my cooking. Suckers, they will never know almost everything I cook for family functions contains onions.

  • Oh my, I think I put onions and garlic in everything I cook! As a pp said, putting the onions in the fridge about an hour before chopping makes them easy to cut without any tears.
