Minimizing Tears while Chopping Onions

Most of the enzymes that cause eyes to tear up while chopping onions are actually in the root of the onion. Leaving it intact while chopping will minimize the tears. Cut the top off the onion and slice it in half through the root. Peel, and place flat side down on a cutting board, minimizing cut root exposure.
