How to make it

  • Peel the dried skins off the onions, and then cut each onion into approximately one-eighth-inch-thick, round slices.
  • Separate the slices into individual rings and put them in your solar or electric dehydrator (an oven set to a low temperature will also work).
  • You will know the onions are sufficiently dried when you can pick up a ring and break it like a potato chip.
  • ~
  • After the onion rings are totally dry, place them in an airtight bag or container until you’re ready to use them.
  • When you need some fresh onion powder, remove a few of the rings from the airtight container and grind them in your blender, food processor or coffee grinder until they’re powdery.
  • A mortar and pestle will also work.
  • If you wait to grind the powder until right before you use it, then it will be freshest.
  • You can use homemade onion powder in cooking the same way you use store-bought onion powder, only the taste is fresher and more pungent.
  • Use onion powder in soups or stews, on popcorn in place of salt, or mixed into dips and salad dressings.

    Now I really have to break down and buy a dehydrator - we use lots of onions and this sounds great!
