I have just realised that the onions I buy never make me cry, they have absolutely no tear power.
It's been at least a few months, I guess I got used to be imune to onions because I used to year contact, but I don't anymore. I got reminded of the 'onions makes you cry' this week end while away, so dealing with onions bought elsewhere.
Both my tear-free and the other one where yellow onions. I store mine in the fridge, not sure about the one from this week-end
So my question is, did I discovered the source of magical tear-free onions? Is this common but no one knows about it? (that there are tear-free onions out there).
My SO hadn't realised either, and as far as I know, tear-free onions taste pretty oniony to me, I mean, they taste the same as a normal onion.
