Deep South Mirepoix
Deep South Mirepoix 8.4 Ounces in plastic jars was developed by Deep South Blenders. This dehydrated blend of onions, carrots, and celery is perfect for soups, stews, meats, and casseroles. No slicing, no dicing, just shake! Mirepoix (pronunciation: meer-PWAH) is the aromatic flavor base made by lightly cooking onions, celery, and carrots. The vegetables are cooked slowly in butter or oil in order to coax out the flavors without browning or caramelizing them. Mirepoix is traditionally used as a flavoring ingredient, which means the vegetables are typically strained out or removed from the final dish before the end of the cooking process. The word mirepoix comes from the last name of a French aristocrat, the Duke Charles-Pierre-Gaston François de Lévis, duc de Lévis-Mirepoix, whose cook is credited with establishing this mix of ingredients as a staple in French cooking in the eighteenth century.
