We've all been there - you have peeled your onion and start to cut it up only to burst out crying. The sadness of the senseless violence against this poor little vegetable.
Well, not really. The tears are because of the vapours released by the onion during the process of cutting it. In this little Instructable I'll show you how I cut my onions with no tears. I promise, there will be no water or fridges involved.
Step 1: The Obligatory "What You Need" List.
This one is a pretty short list.
You will need:
* 1 or more onions.
* A cutting board.
* A sharp paring knife.
* A special note on knives *
Make sure you keep your kitchen knives sharp at all times. No knife in the kitchen is more dangerous than a blunt/dull knife. A sharp knife will ensure a true cut and will not slip or slide. A blunt knife however may easily slip from where you are cutting and cause you an injury.
