I used onion powder a ton before I started with real food. And now I still do…but I felt weird about it, until I realized how easy it actually is to make in my own kitchen. Oh, and it’s a lot cheaper too. I figure if it’s something I can make myself, then it’s something I can use without feeling bad about it. 🙂 Good thing, because I have family members who can’t stand the texture of onions!
- 1 or more large yellow onions
Slice up the onion and remove the peel. Place the onion on trays for a dehydrator or on baking sheets. Turn the oven or dehydrator to about 150 degrees. Dry for 5 – 6 hours, or until completely “crunchy,” no longer “mushy” at all. Grind these in a small coffee or spice grinder. Store in a small glass jar.
This is so simple!! And it really works!
