  1. I always cut the root off of the onions first, doesn’t stop me from tearing up. I must use really strong onions. Helps to clear the sinuses though. So other good tips I knew others I didn’t. Thanks.

    Hope you are doing much better!


    • Hey Jules,

      I am doing better each day, thank u for asking. Brown & Yellow onions are super strong. Another tip that works is if you light a small candle just before you start cutting. The tear producing fumes are attracted to heat and therefore stops u from crying. Also place a slice of bread next to the cutting board. The bread soaks up the fumes and u wont cry….lol..


      • Now that bread trick…that I’d be willing to try. Too bad I already chopped up my onions for tonight. I’ve got a hand chopper and and electric chopper. But I’ve gotten to like taking the time at the chopping board. 🙂


      • Yay! I don’t mind chopping unless I have a lot to do for one dish. I’ve got plenty of battle scars to show for it! …
