Onions release substances that irritate eyes, resulting in that inevitable production of tears. Minimise your tears by always using a sharp knife keeping cuts away from you. Some people swear by chilling an onion before you cut into it as it releases less propanethial s-oxide, the stuff that goes for the eyes! Or you could wear goggles, perhaps, a great look in the kitchen.
Perfect for ... Stir-frying, cooking or eating in salads.
