        Is this equivalent to 1 packet of onion soup mix?

        No, This makes more. You need 5 tbs per pint of sour cream.

        Is this recipe calling for fresh minced onion, or the dried minced onion from the spice aisle? Thanks for your help!

        I use this to season my beef roast prior to browning. Using this instead of salt and pepper adds flavor and gives it great color. Then, into the slow-cooker with onions, mushrooms, red wine, beef broth, and cloned cream of mushroom soup. Auto gravy for the roast. Always a hit for entertaining or family.

        Walmart online sells Augason Farms brand bouillon in a #10 can. That's 5 pounds of bouillon for $22.36. If you use quite a bit of bouillon this is a good price. Compared to the smaller 3.25 ounce jars, it's about 1/2 price. I have a can but have not opened it yet. I use Augason Farms products on a regular basis. I just haven't opened the bouillon yet. If you go to AugasonFarms.com website, their reviews are outstanding. But it's cheaper if you buy from Walmart.
