Class Acts & Onions
We mostly know that I leave cooking and such like to my Cheaper Half! I do occasionally offer my services in the preparation of courses to wit I'm not too bad at . Providing there is a box of Elastoplast and a swear tin handy, I'm happy to chop away.
Strangely, when it comes to the cutting of onions I am extremely tolerant to that making my eyes water. In all honesty, I cannot remember the last time my eyes went bulb moist! I can only surmise the onion is now exacting revenge on the 21st century public, for some past-life humiliating, mutilation treatment or other and I was Queen Onion Worshiper of Ancient Egypt!
Of course, there are plenty hints and trials on how to keep tears at bay while chopping onions. My hubby suggests chopping and slicing the onion under water. But what kind of advice is that? Does he really expect people to keep popping up for air every 60 seconds or so? He may be an excellent cook but he can't half be silly at times...!!
