Cut onions ahead of time

Cattie | May 12, 2008 09:33 AM

Hi all!
Is it ok to slice/cut onions a few hours before you're going to cook with it and keep it in a glass container in the fridge until you're ready to start cooking?

I seem to remember my Mom saying that cutting onion ahead of time made it bitter or sour or something like that...
