There was a time when I dreaded every time I had to cut an onion.
1, I didn’t know how to do it properly
2, I knew I was going to have the oh-so-common sob fest every time I attempted it.
Thanks to an online demo and a tip I picked up somewhere along the way, that time was gratefully short- because onions are awesome in almost everything!
So how DO you keep the waterworks off while chopping this most basic ingredient?
Light a candle my friend!
Really. If you cut onion by an open flame, the fumes somehow absorb those annoying gasses that leak out of the onion and PRESTO! No more tears 🙂
