Onion, Minced

Like chopped onions, minced onions can be used to replace fresh onions. Use them when you are out of fresh onions or when you need to save time and want to avoid the mess of chopping onions. Minced onion are smaller than the chopped and are typically used in meat dishes and sauces to replace finely chopped onions.

Two tablespoons of our Minced Onions is equivalent to one-third a cup of chopped fresh onions. Silver Cloud's Onion, Minced contains dehydrated onion prepared from fresh white onions which have been cleaned, sliced, dehydrated, and milled to desired size.

The onion (Allium cepa) is one of the oldest and most important of all vegetables.  The genus Allium, with about 1250 species, is one of the largest plant genera in the world. Its exact origins are unknown, but it is thought to have originated in either Afghanistan or Iran.  Depending on the variety, an onion can be sharp, spicy, tangy and pungent or mild and sweet.

In Canaanite Bronze Age settlements, traces of onions were found alongside fig and dates dating back to 5000 BC.  The slaves who built the pyramids were partially reimbursed for their labor with onions, garlic and radishes.  The Ancient Egyptians worshipped onions believing their spherical shape and concentric rings symbolized eternal life. They believed the strong scent of onions would bring breath back to the dead and traces of onions were found in the eye sockets of Ramses IV.

In ancient Greece, athletes ate large quantities of onion because it was believed that it would lighten the balance of blood. Roman gladiators were rubbed down with onion to firm up their muscles. During the Middle Ages onions were so valuable that people would pay their rent  and give them as gifts.

The advent of convenience foods late in this century greatly increased the demand for onions, especially dehydrated onions.  During World War II, the armed forces required huge quantities of granulated, chopped and sliced onions for use in prepared meals and the cultivation and processing of onions exploded.  After the war, civilians generally accepted onions and the demand did not abate.  Today, onions are found in a bewildering array of recipes they are probably the most widely used spice for flavoring food. 

Due to the ease with which, onions are propagated, transported and stored, they are readily available in fresh, frozen, canned, pickled, powdered, and dehydrated forms. Onions are rarely eaten on their own, but are usually a food ingredient. In most foods, onions are chopped, sliced or powdered.

Vanilla bean and extract prices have increased significantly this year. This is due to a smaller than expected crop in Madagascar last year. This was aggravated by early picking and the vacuum packing of uncured beans. While short term the news is not good, the 2016 flowering was excellent and we anticipate a good harvest. This may lead to some price softening, but with the strong demand for vanilla we have seen it is hard to say how much relief we will see. We will know more later this year as new crop, cured beans become available. Best case we do not anticipate any significant reduction in price before the end of the 1st quarter of 2017.
