Did you know you can mellow out the flavor of raw onions by simply soaking them in in cold water?
First, chop or slice the onions, then place in a bowl of very cold or ice water and let soak for a few minutes. Drain and use. It’s that simple.
This quick soak takes the strong bite away that is associated with raw onions and will make the final product much more mild (and kid-friendly too).
So next time you are adding raw onions to a dish, do a quick cold-water soak first. Your friends and family will appreciate it!
