talk about bittersweet. onions, i love them in recipes, in salads, on sandwiches, etc. but i HATE cutting onions. they make my cry, even though i take out the core, they smell up the kitchen, and it takes so much time when trying to quickly whip something together. so here is my solution. you all have probably already thought of this. i am a little slow on things. i buy a bag of onions, cut the entire bag at once, and wipe mascara off my face for approximately 40 minutes or so, slight exaggeration. after i chop all the onions, i put them in a glass pyrex bowl and place them in the freezer. then whenever i need a small amount of onions for a recipe, out comes the bowl. i scoop a little out and wha-la, no onion chopping, no running mascara, oh the joy! put the bowl back in freezer and there is plenty more for later.
