Raw onions are delicious on burgers and sandwiches but they can really create strong odors in the house and on your breath. To lessen the pungency of raw onions, try this easy trick: soak the slices (or chopped pieces) in ice water for 10 minutes, then drain. You’ll still get the great onion flavor but the strong sulphur compounds will be neutralized.
