Cheap Tricks: Bitey Onions

We eat a lot of onions, and sometimes we come across onions that are too hot, intense, or just too dang bitey to enjoy. Here’s a tip I’ve used for years and it works. Some people say you have to drown your onions up to a half hour but a few minutes is all you really need.

  1. Now I’ll have to try to remember that 🙂 We don’t do a lot with raw onions, they sometimes get my stomach. Maybe I’ll have to try this trick and see if I can tolerate them better. Have a great weekend!

      PS Apologies to you and Stacy. Apparently WordPress is getting tetchy again. For some reason it is picking on the same people again. I don’t know why. \o/
