Quick Tip of the Day: No more tears (when cutting onions)

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 🙂


I'd love to hear what you think!
