Supercook or Superdork? How to cut 4 lbs of onions without crying
Alright, here it is, I've got to chop 4 pounds of onions. Why? Because I am a slave to my cravings for French Onion soup. In my sordid cooking past, I just suffered through tears streaming down my face, snotty nose and burning eyes. I tried wearing sunglasses, chewing gum, breathing through just my mouth as some people have prescribed. Cutting an onion under running water is a retarded idea; watch your flavour go down the drain too. Nothing worked, until, I whipped on the swimming goggles. Hooray, sulphur begone! I had minimal problems, besides them steaming up once in a while. I kind of like feeling like a dork.
Here's my solution, try it if you dare:
1. Use a sharp knife
2. Chop Fast! See video below...
3. Wear swimming or snorkeling goggles both for the entertainment of your guests and for the protection of your eyes.
