How can I peel onions without tears?

Peeling Onions

When peeling onions, soak in cold water for half an hour before peeling to prevent irritation to the eyes. Alternatively, peel under a running cold tap.

Better yet, cut off the ends and bin them right away - that's where the irritant is kept.

its better to put onions on the fridge. There is one enzime that is responsible for the irration in the eyes, the cooler drops the enzime activity.
