Prue, I think you’ve analysed that liquid perfectly. It’s yours.
If that golden liquid isn’t lemon dishwashing detergent decanted into a pretty glass but something applely or peary, preferably aged 20 years, that might be my pick. As long as the rat hasn’t supped from it.
You’re welcome, Kay. You might want the knife, too. It has a sharp serrated edge for swift onion treatment.
I would take the purple onion everytime – with the purple glasses to wear when peeling it.
