Can you peel onions without tears?

Wow, one person has an inkling on how to cut onions. Ha ha, The hold a slice of bread in your mouth works by absorbing the vapours before they get to your eyes. Gran used to do that, but you know what works just as good. Cool the onions down in the fridge before you cut them. It is the vapours (obviously) that cause it. Lower temperatures cause less vapours to escape. See the difference between cutting onions on a cold day, hardly any tears, and cutting onions on a hot day, help I can't see, sniff. I haven't tried doing it under water in the sink, but that sounds like it might work. Keep your onions in the vege crisper in the fridge, you'll be right mate.
