    It makes most people cry less (Petal doesn’t count, apparently...she’s a sweetheart, but this is absurd) and it means you can chop them quickly and evenly, so it’s the preferred method.

    - Chop off the top, but leave the root intact at the base. Chop in half, and take the skin off.

    - Make horizontal cuts through the half of the onion you’re using, stopping just short of the root

    - Make vertical cuts. You’ll get nice even little cubes, leaving the root on means the onion holds together a little better so you can do it faster and it won’t “bleed” to irritate your eyes nearly as much.

    A sharp knife and being able to work quickly also helps, because you’re not exposed to as much of the irritant. I’ll show you a video if you need it.




    I have never, not ever in my entire life, heard a more bloodcurdling scream than the time my friend Jos was working with hot peppers, chose not to wear gloves, forgot to wash his hands properly and then disappeared into the bathroom...



    Washing your hands properly is the first thing we’re taught. We scrub ourselves nearly raw, it’s done so much. This is one of the reasons why. Poor Josi.
    That's what disposable gloves are for!

    He knows this now...

    Seriously though, in all honesty, choosing not to wear gloves is not exactly uncommon. As counterintuitive as it sounds, it’s actually easier to work cleanly without them. We’re far more likely to remember to wash our hands again than switch to a new pair of gloves.
