Onion. This product is mentioned only in Numbers 11:5, as one of the good things of Egypt, of which the Israel regretted the loss. Onions have been, from time immemorial, a favorite article of food among the Egyptians,. The onions of Egypt are much milder in flavor, and less pungent than those of this country.
