Onions are a popular and ancient food. They have been cultivated for the past 5000 thousand years. The word “onion” stems from Latin for large pearl, ‘unio.” Despite our long history with onions, they still make us cry. Use minced onion in any recipe calling for fresh onion that needs that onion texture as well as flavor. Try making a savory southwest chicken chili with minced onion, cumin, oregano, and garlic powder. Two tablespoons of minced onion is equal to one medium onion, chopped. Don’t forget to put minced onion in your next lasagna or casserole!
