I’m sick of crying like a baby every time I chop onions, aren’t you? I mean, I have tried every trick in the book. Partially freezing the onion first, keeping the root intact, holding a piece of bread in my mouth to absorb the gas that the onion’s now broken cells are emitting, etc… And to be perfectly honest, I am an efficient and effective onion chopper so I do it pretty quickly too! But despite my knife skills I am extremely sensitive to the gas that onions emit so I am crying like a baby within a few cuts….like mascara running down my face crying. And that just sets me up to chop a finger off since I can’t see what I’m doing despite my good knife skills!
So I say, enough is enough! And poor Christian shouldn’t have to be the designated onion chopper in our family all the time. So despite how ridiculous it makes me look, I have been chopping onions happily for the past month wearing my swimming goggles. Ridiculous? A bit. Effective and time-saving? Absolutely.
I have to tell you….I tried this trick today and it totally worked! My husband thought I was a bit ridiculous, but so what! Thanks for the great tip Savory Girl!
Great, glad you liked the tip…embrace your inner culinary geek! Christian makes fun of me too, but he’d prefer I look silly over me begging him to chop the onions for me :)
