Cutting onions is not fun. The moment you start chopping, your eyes start stinging uncontrollably, you struggle not to keep rubbing them, and before long, it looks like you’re having a breakdown as you prepare dinner!
The good news is, it doesn’t have to be that way!
You may have heard of “hacks” like wearing swimming goggles while chopping onions (let’s be real, who wants to do that?) or cutting the onions under running water (and potentially making a mess), but this one is far simpler and guarantees no more onion slicing tears!
Jack Scalfani, the popular Internet chef, has decided to share a way that many cooks, professional or otherwise, use when chopping onions to avoid those red eyes.
All you have to do is find the root of the onion and remove the bulb from the vegetable.
