Chopping onions with out crying

Here's an email I received recently from my good friend Melanie. I find it funny, insightful, and kinda cute.

"I think I've got the solution to cutting onions w/out crying.  I had a particularly tearful bag of onions this week.  So the second and subsequent times I used onions from that bag I breathed through my mouth - the entire time I chopped until they were sauteing in the pan for a few seconds.

I learned this trick from the movie "Jack Goes Boating."  There was a scene w/a professional chef teaching the protagonist how to cook.  It worked for me!

Happy holiday cooking!" -Melanie

Thanks Melanie. Happy Holidays to you too!
