you all offered some interesting ideas about what to do to prevent me from crying. It is so durn annoying when you have to stop to wipe your eyes with a cloth. I do get impatient when I know I will have to look forward to this happening. Evidently you all know what I am talking about. I thank you all and will keep onions in fridge and get knives sharpened. Have t o keep up with all these details makes the job so complicated. I really don't have a choice t o eliminate the onions. They are so vital in soup and so man other dishes. I will try all your suggestions and see whic h one is the best. Appreciate your interest. Thanks for understanding.
Constance, I'm going to try the lemon juice. Nothing else works for me. As I've gotten older (???!!!!!!!!!) the tears have gotten worse. mr. callie usually feels sorry for me and does the cutting/dicing.
AllenMI, I've never kept my onions in the fridge (except after I've cut them). Do they keep well?
