I Can't Believe I'm Still Crying...

Fucking onions.  I even bought one of those Slap Chop things thinking it would be faster and therefore less teary.  Nope!  At least my food will be damn good when it's done :)

I hate cutting onions. I've tried every trick and they still burn my eyes.

I know.  I read somewhere that chewing gum while cutting onions helped you to not cry...nope!  I even took my goggles home when I worked at a dental practice.  Nope!

Wear sunglasses when you but the onions it doesn't completely shield your eyes from tear causing onions but it helps.

Love your Avi!  I only buy vidalia onions now because I can't handle white anymore. 

It does help if you run them under cool water once you cut the ends off, but not a lot.

I'll leave you with a funny.

Cut the onions under water, or stick them in the freezer for 15 mins before cutting them. No tears :)

I think this is a food science thing and I think it was proven to work.  Cutting onions underwater doesn't seem too safe to me... Just sayin'.  haha.
