    On the dried onions she probably means dehydrated onions. I buy mine from frontier co-op

      Okay, I’ll assume what you all are saying is correct…I just wasn’t familiar with rehydrating them, but that makes sense

    Dry onions bits are in the herb and spice section at the grocery and are dehydrated onions. To hydrate soak or boil in water.

    Hi Kevin. Your “dried onions” might be the same as “diced onions” found in the spice isle of your grocery store.

    I have used dehydrated onions in my pasta and potato salads for years. I love raw onion but it seems in my salads they just keep getting stronger and stronger until that is all you taste in the salad. When I reconstitute dehydrated onions I get the onion favor but they do not take over the salad.
    I have never heard before about reconstituting them using boiling water and will try this method.
    I have always used very cold water and soaked them in a bowl overnight in the refrigerator, and then drain off the excess water.
    I wonder which method retains the most onion flavor !!!

      Thanks, Carol, I think that is the part that confused me was reconstituting by boiling, that was new to me also!
