History of classic GardenFrost garlic
Onions are one of the longest cultivated crops in history. It is believed to have originated in Central Asia, Iran or West Pakistan - the exact origin is unknown as onions are small and leave little trace evidence. Early documents show the crop was used for food, medicine, art and mummification.
Purées are made of cooked food such as carrots or peas that are ground, pressed, blended or sieved to the consistency of a creamy paste or liquid. The word itself is of French origin, where it meant in Old French “purified” or “refined.”
