  1. Onions are my favourite fruit! I use them in practically everything. And oodles of garlic as well.

  2. Oh, those things destroy my sensitive "baby blues." I have to leave the kitchen whenever they are being sliced. After that, all is well, and I love them raw on burgers, chopped into dishes, and cooked in stews and stir-fries. (Those look like Vidalias... best of all onions.)

    1. I don't usually have a problem at all! I've heard if you get teary, it means your knife is dull!

  6. Love how you tied your title with slicing onions. Ha! I think I heard that it's the sulphur in the onions that make your eyes water. I love onions cooked or raw. Haven't had teary eyes, though, in awhile.

    1. Yeah, I don't usually either. I think I need to sharpen my knives!
      Seems like I slice or chop one every night while making dinner! haha.

  7. So sad......the onion was too young to die. :) That's what you meant right?
    If I start to tear up while chopping an onion I rinse my hands under very cold water, and it stops the tears.

    As the chopping of the onion flies

  9. I watched the Japanese, back in 1953, slice onions in a bowl of water and asked why and they said to keep from tears from running out of their eyes. They also sleep in a tiny room on a tatami mat (rice straw) and have a hibachi burning like charcoal--in their hibachi urn. When I wake up after a night of that I have the father of all migraine headaches.

  11. Oh yes, onions are a real tear jerker! I worked fast food a bazillion years ago and we used to have to cut onions every day. I always tried to avoid that job whenever I could so that my eye makeup wouldn't run all down my face.

    1. Seems I've been cutting an onion every day lately! haha. And in the morning when I wash my face I can still smell them on my fingers!

  12. Chilling an onion in the fridge, slicing it with a cold knife or slicing under cold water works for me.
    Or all three!
