Almost Amazing Fact of the Day

Fact No. 14:   Onions were grown in ancient Egypt, and eventually arrived in Rome where they became known as “onion,” from the Latin word, “Unio,” meaning “large pearl.”  In Middle English, the vegetable became known as “unyon.”  The onion’s status skyrocketed when Stanislaus I, a former King of Poland, popularized French onion soup.
