Cooking Hack #139

Prevent Onions From Making You Weep

To stop onion-induced tears, freeze the onion before chopping.  Or if you want to look absolutely crazy when your housemate walks in,

put a Slice Of Bread in your mouth (partially sticking out) to absorb the irritant gas before it reaches the eyes 

Note: This trick only works if youre planning to cook the onions laterotherwise, after the onion thaws out, the raw pieces will be a bit soggy!
