Dried onions are the perfect shortcut. They bring all the sharp, sweet flavor of fresh onions, without the peeling and chopping. Use them in any recipe that calls for fresh onion, like casseroles, soups, stews, salads and dips. McCormick dried onions begin as whole, white onions harvested at peak flavor. They are peeled and carefully dehydrated to preserve every ounce of flavor. Two tablespoons of dried chopped onions equals 1/2 a cup of chopped fresh onion. Life in the kitchen just got a whole lot easier!
