Cook's Tips: - Caramelize onions for soup by cooking them slowly in a little oil until they are golden. This technique brings out the fullest, richest onion flavour. - Dried herbs enhance soup, salads, main dishes, and mor, but can become stale over time. Properly stored, they should stay fresh for about a year. To preserve freshness, sore dried herbs in glass jars away from moisture, heat and light.
