So you know that moment when you’re standing in the kitchen, and you’re tryin to get dinner ready and the clock is ticking, and everything is going smoothly until?that juicy onion is left staring at us, waiting to be chopped, so it can make our eyes burn and water like crazy. But I have a tip for you that will make you dance so that you know how to chop an onion without shedding tears!?Per the rules of Chemistry, onions release a sulfenic acid when they are chopped. When this acid hits the air it results in irritating the lachmyric glands in the eyes causing the eyes to burn and tear. But no more! Thanks to an old Italian tradition, this tip will allow you to chop, dice, etc. your onions without having to think twice.? All you need to do is take 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and pour it in the palms of your hands (rub it around in your palms). This combatant neutralizes the acids in the onion and lets your eyes breathe easy, no more tears! It also eliminates onion odors on your hands as well! Good Luck & Enjoy 🙂
