Pin #37: Onions without Tears!

onionPeeling and cutting onions always results in tears and smeared mascara in our house!

A useful pin appeared one day on my Pinterest home page promising to prevent watery eyes while dealing with those delicious but pain causing onions.

The pin simply suggested rubbing olive oil on your knife prior to peeling and cutting your onion!  Could it really be that easy?

I tried it and it worked!  I peeled, sliced, and diced an onion with No tears! 

So now the only time I will cry while preparing dinner is when I accidently burn the meal.  I haven’t come up with a solution for that problem yet!
