How can I reduce pungency when using raw onions?

To reduce pungency, sharpness or after taste, cut them the way you plan to use them and place them into a bowl of ice water. Let it stand for 1 / hours before draining. 

If time is at a premium, place onions in a strainer or sieve and run water through the onions for at least 1 minute.
