What helps avoid tears when cutting onions

When we cut onions, we break cells, releasing enzymes that irritate our eyes. Water helps avoid tears when cutting onions. Put some water in your mouth and let it hang out while chopping. Do not swallow the water, until you finish cutting. Also you can cut onions in the sink under running water.

Use a very sharp knife while cutting onions. A sharp knife will cause less damage to an onion, and fewer irritants will be released.

A tip from the Chef: A sip of white wine will prevent tears when chopping onions.

How to keep radishes longer

After you have come from the grocery, separate your radishes from the greens. Wash the radishes and rinse them thoroughly with cold water. Then wrap them in a damp cloth, put them in a jar or bowl and store in the fridge. You can keep radishes longer for 5-6 days this way without losing their crunch and flavor. Before serving radishes, soak them in ice cold water to refresh.

If radishes start to lose some of their crunch, put enough water in the jar and put the radishes in it. Place them in refrigerator and they will become fresh as new.
