Crying when chopping onions
Tip 1: Chopping onions has to be one of the most tedious tasks when cooking. You need an extra chopping board for this purpose. This is because the onion odour lingers on the cut surfaces and can soon transfer to other foods. However, the real reason why people dislike cutting onions is that it irritates their eyes. You find your eyes starting to water after just a few seconds. Some people resort to donning diving goggles! They might look pretty eccentric, but they do the trick. If you don’t want to look like a deep sea diver in the kitchen, you could either get a vegetable chopper for cooking prep, or try this simple trick - hold a mouthful of water in your mouth when you’re chopping onions.
