As kids, most of us learn the hard way that the Venn diagram of food that tastes nice and food that is actually good for us doesn’t always overlap. Why couldn’t nature make something with the health benefits of broccoli taste like a gummy multivitamin? Once we grow up, many of us have a more refined palate when it comes to these things. Still, there remain flavor combinations that most of us would never go near in a million years, even if it granted us immunity from cancer.
The words ‘onion water’ are not something that would fill many with joy, but apparently its supposed benefits are all the rage on TikTok. It led @peachmangojuice777 to share a video of her preparing some for herself, which it’s fair to say received a mixed response. The recipe might be hair-raising, but her method of preparation is possibly even more so. It really doesn’t look worth it.
