Prevent Crying When Chopping Onions

Wear tight fitting goggles to prevent the chemicals in onions from entering your eye. It really works! Amazon sells special Onion Goggles and they look sporty, cool, and a tad nerdy.

    I find that rinsing the onion in cold water after to peal it and cut in half works well. I also throw the peal away as soon as I remove it. This usually works unless the onion is particularly strong, which is not often with the white onions that I use.
