onions and tears


If you have tears when you cut onions, it’s because of an enzyme in onions that releases a gas that irritates the eyes and brings tears.

If you want to reduce your tears during cutting onions, you can try 2 these simple ways:
1- Chill onions before cutting.
2- start cutting the onions from the top, not the stem.
