7 reviews for Frontier Chopped Onion, 1 Pound, Dried & Chopped Sweet White Onion, Kosher, Sustainably Grown
  • 5 out of 5

    So convenient! I use these for everything from soups to bread. I am an avid bread baker and use these for my “famous” (?) onion cheese swirl bread. Yeah, yummy. Rather than cut up and use fresh onions, I re-hydrate these. The best thing about these is that I can control the moisture. For my bread I use a whole cup of dried flakes, and moderately re-hydrate them. Not too wet or they will ruin the bread. I mix them into the dough (no knead method), and then roll out the dough in the morning to add the cheese.

    When used in soup, I put them in as is, but remember, you have to have more liquid in the soup to be absorbed. Most other uses, say, egg salad, I re-hydrate them first. They are not suitable for sauteed onions, but for everything else, so great to have on hand. I have used these for many years and will continue to do so. Frontier is a company I can trust for quality and freshness. P.S. I put the second bag in the freezer. May not be necessary, but that’s just me.

    I love frontier. They always have a great product. Unfortunately I had to leave 3 stars as I only received one bag when the description states 2. So the value for the money was very low. This may have been an error or maybe the amount changed and was not updated on Amazon, I don’t know. But other than receiving only half the order the product is very good.

    I have bought this several times. Love it!!

    Wow. All the five-star reviews are right: this is a fantastic product. In anything cooked, they’re indistinguishable from finely chopped fresh onions. They’re so good, completely lacking the burnt, bitter taste that’s inescapable in supermarket products (

    McCormick Minced Onion

    , for example), that I decided to try using them where I’d ordinarily feel compelled to use fresh onions—in cold salads.

    I mixed a tablespoon of these chopped onions with two tablespoons of very cold water (my tap water is only a fraction above 32°F in the middle of winter) and let it sit covered in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Since my fridge is also only slightly above freezing, the onions stayed very cold the whole time. I didn’t want to use hot water, as another reviewer suggested, because I wanted to see how close I could get these to fresh onions, and hot water would soften even fresh onions. As it turned out, very cold water rehydrated them just fine; there’s no need at all to use hot or even warm water.

    Before mixing them with anything else, though, I tasted them. Except for the sort of ivory color, and except for the fact that I never in my life have chopped fresh onions this finely, I’d have a hard time saying they weren’t fresh. If I’d been blindfolded and somebody else (who might actually bother to chop onions this finely) had fed them to me, I don’t think I’d have known they weren’t fresh. I might have thought they were a wonderful new variety of onion I’d never tasted before, because the taste was more complex than onions usually are, but in a good way. I was amazed.

    I really didn’t think they’d pass this test, but they did. They taste like fresh onions, slightly sweet with a rich but not overwhelming oniony flavor—and they’re even crisp like fresh onions. They ARE very mild, though, so people who like the kick fresh onions have that makes your eyes water (these don’t) will be disappointed. (They’re much more finely chopped than they look in the photograph, by the way. “Minced” would really be a more accurate description than “chopped”.)

    Then I tried them in tuna salad and chicken salad. I couldn’t tell any difference at all from fresh onions. In fact, both salads tasted better than they ever have before; the difference must have come from the onions. It’s the kind of pleasant surprise that I’d express as, “There’s something wonderful in this, but I can’t quite figure out what it is,” if I hadn’t made the salads myself, using the same ingredients I always use except for the onions.

    I may never buy fresh onions again. The only uses that would still require fresh onions, where they MUST be sliced or cut in big chunks, not chopped, are things I rarely if ever make, like fried onion rings, kebabs, stir-fry, chunky beef stew, etc. If I ever do make those things, I’ll just buy however many onions I need and use them immediately. I’ll never again either be out of onions when I need some or be surprised to find sprouting or rotting onions I’d forgotten I had. Best of all: I’ll never, EVER, have to chop onions again!

    I bought it at an excellent price $5 and have zero complaints. Have used in cooking soups and casseroles, baking cornbread, guacamole and salsa.

    Frontier never fails to please and this is no exception. Nice, clean dried chopped onions that are great to use in soups, stews, casseroles, etc. or any dish calling for fresh onions. If you live in a rural area andbuy several weeks worth of groceries at a time, these are a good replacement for fresh. You can only use up so much fresh produce before it goes bad and these make a perfect substitute. I store mine in qt. mason jars and it filled 2 of them and refilled my 8 oz container that fits easily into my spice cabinet. Frontier sells quality products at reasonable prices and are now my go to supplier for things like this.
