Right onions! I want to have onion tarte (inspired by lady pink!), so you need to be chopped! Into battle! Armed with old wives tale number one. Hold a piece of bread in mouth while chopping, will prevent tears.
As I found to my detriment, the bread goes soggy and falls out your mouth, you spend most of the time furiously sucking the bread and fighting the urge to gag!
And its effects are less than effective! On to old wives tale number two...
A spoon in the mouth, for reasons completely unknown to me, should stop the tears!
Oh sod it! Lets have a good old cry!
Onions + Butter = Delicious Aromas Wafting Round Kitchen!
Husband declared this to be one of the best things he had ever eaten.....a good friend of mine who hates onions probably had nightmares about this last night! But she liked the cake!
