Potatoes make me sneeze

tbear | Sep 23, 2003 08:23 PM

So we all know that cuttings onions can make you cry, but cutting potatoes makes me sneeze. I've always noticed it a little, but tonight was like a full-blown allergic sneezing fit as I was dicing some reds for dinner. Sometimes it's worse, other times I don't experience it at all. I really only noticed the correlation recently (probably cuz such a thing never entered my mind as a possibility). Or maybe I'm just a freak.

Anybody else ever had this happen to them? If so, are certain varieties worse than others? I may have to investigate scientifically ...
