Onions are an integral part of so many delicious dishes. But cooking with onions comes with an unfortunate side effect, crying! All you will need to do is cut off the top of the onion, then place in a small pool of water and voila! No tears, simple right?

00:00:02,544 --> 00:00:08,145
One of the most common questions I get is
how do you cut an onion without crying?
00:00:08,145 --> 00:00:13,403
Well I'm Jenné Claiborne and I'm here to
tell you exactly how you can do that.
00:00:13,403 --> 00:00:18,471
Let's cut this top off and
I'm gonna cut it in half as well.
00:00:18,471 --> 00:00:21,775
Then you just take this skin off.
00:00:21,775 --> 00:00:27,393
Now the next step is slice your onion
in water, about a centimeter of water.
00:00:27,393 --> 00:00:34,421
And now I have my little perfect
pieces of sliced onions and no tears.
