The chemicals that give strong onions their bite and fire are the most beneficial to our health. No wishywashywallawallas or vapidvidalias for us. So put on the goggles and attack! You can also cut the onions underwater or put some vinegar on your chopping board to reduce the fumes. Luckily, they are removed once you start to cook the onions, and cooked onions are just as healthy as raw, so make up batch of caramelized onions, put them on cookie trays in a thin layer, then break them into chunks and keep them frozen until you wish to thaw them for omelets or throw them into soups/stews.
