How To Peel Onions Without Crying

Food And Drink : Great Food Tips

To prevent your eyes form watering when peeling onions.....peel under water (the onion that is!)


To stop your eyes running whilst peeling onions, hold a metal tea spoon in your mouth whilst peeling (handle end first).



You may look stupid but it does work.

More onions advice

If you want to stop your eyes streaming when peeling onions - Hold a needle (with care!) between your teeth whilst peeling. It works every time for me!

Don't throw away those GOOD OLD SWIMMING GOGGLES! Put this on before peeling it ... now not only you can see the onion clearly, you can peel it without tears! This is especilly great when you want to train your kids in the kitchen too!

The best way is to keep onions in the fridge... When they are cold they dont make you cry!

This is the only way that has worked for me.
