I put a metal spoon (dipped side) on my tongue, and chop away (and I’ll let you in on a lil secret), till this day not one tear.
Just one slice of an onion can send even the bravest of souls, running from the kitchen to the bathroom, to wash their hands and face because the Scent is just so strong.
So I guess my question is, is there really a remedy that prevents our eyes from watering when cutting onions?
Are all those remedies we hear about such as hold a wooden matchstick between your teeth, use a sharp knife, hold a piece of bread in your mouth etc just plain ole wives tales?
What do you think…
