Onions – Good for the body, good for the soul
Over 5,000 years ago, during the Bronze Age, onion came into their own. We believe that onions were first developed in Iran and Western Pakistan – centuries before writing was developed. And we know that they were a staple in ancient civilizations like Sumer, Babylonia and Egypt. Onions were nutritious, less perishable, easy to grow , and could be easily carried from one place to another. There are other stories from the Romans, the Greeks, Indians, Middle Ages, and the Pilgrims extolling the value of onions. Even General Ulysses Grant complained that he could not move the army without onions.
