Toasting coconut - fumes
I was toasting some pre-shredded coconut in the oven and when I opened the door to check on it, I felt like I got hit by pepper spray. Eyes watery, plus a burning sensation in the sinus cavities. It lasted a few seconds then the pain went away and things resumed smelling like lovely coconut. I think I better hold my breath and close my eyes while leaning as far away from the oven as possible next time! Does anyone else get this reaction?
