Onions are my favourite fruit! I use them in practically everything. And oodles of garlic as well.
I use onions and garlic in just about everything, too! Yum.
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.)
Even if you aren't doing the slicing? haha....well now, you are a sensitive guy, aren't you!
And yes...Vidalias....straight from Georgia! My very favorite!
Try refrigerating them..I do them one at a time..you won't cry when you cut them up! 😃
I don't usually have a problem at all! I've heard if you get teary, it means your knife is dull!I know my knives are dull...time to get that sharpener out!
I hate those onion tears!
It kind of starts in your nose, doesn't it? So tickly!
I ate a whole jar of pickled onions wholst watching the Olympics yesterday . . and drank some vinegar . . . and I didn't cry once . . . lol
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.
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.
Usually I cry a lot with them :)
Double the tears! ha.
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.
Well, that's an interesting trick!
Good way to clear the eyesAs the chopping of the onion flies
Could make your mascara runjust when you've begun!
The title says it all.
Well, yeah. :)
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.
when I read the title I braced myself and thought "oh no", aren't you a funny girl? Glad it was only onions.
haha...uh oh! No sad stories today. haha.
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.
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!
Chilling an onion in the fridge, slicing it with a cold knife or slicing under cold water works for me.Or all three!
