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 πŸ™‚
