Cutting Onions Can Be So EmotionalDo Cutting Onions Make You Cry?

Of course they do unless you’re wearing Onion Goggles like we do in our house.  I’m hoping these cartoons will add a little humor to some everyday cooking situations that you may have found yourself in.

Tee shirts, aprons & other fun stuff

I have printed some of these cartoons on tee shirts and other fun stuff at Zazzle . If you don’t see the cartoon you want, let me know and I will try to get it up there for you. They make great gifts for your favorite “reluctant” gourmet.

What Makes You Cry When Cutting Onions?

I did a little research on the Internet and came away more confused than when I started. Amino acid sulfoxides, propanethiol S-oxide, sulfuric acid, highly volatile, allinase enzymes, lachrymal glands and so on. For the most scientific explanation I could find, check out Mental_Floss “where knowledge junkies get their fix.”
