A Kitchen Tip

This tip comes from Mario Batali. One morning when I was watching "Molto Mario", I learned that biting on a wooden spoon helps get rid of tears when you're chopping onions. I tried it and lo and behold! it worked! I was chopping shallots today and I remembered that little tidbit of information. I grabbed a wooden spoon and held it (horizontally, of course) in my mouth and my eyes stopped burning!

I'm gonna have to give this a whirl when I make soup in a few days... Last time my eyes teared & burned so badly, I had to go out on my porch for a while. o_O

Hope you're doing well!
