How to make onion powder at home.

Homemade Onion Powder
The jar on the left is dried onion that I didn’t run through the coffee grinder. I wish I had saved a bit more out for this purpose.

Onions in water
When I peel a ton of onions I always put them in water. It helps with the tear inducing issues that come from slicing onions.
Does it work? I’d like to think so. It could also be all in my head.

Onions in the food processor

I set out to slice these onions in the food processor. They were more like pulverized. I must have used the wrong blade. I really wanted dehydrated slices…. Like these below….

…the last time I dehydrated onions. Alas, that is not what I got.

For whatever reason they turned a pinkish color after being in the dehydrator.(I use this dehydrator)
Not sure why, but it didn’t affect the taste.

So, instead of sliced onions I got this mush. I set the dehydrator in hopes to still be able to use the onions.
It worked out fine.
I used our coffee grinder (I use this one) to make the powder.

I store the onion powder in a jar that I repurposed.

This was 9 trays of dehydrated onion mush turned onion powder.

You can see the line of where the onions that were pinkish compared to the other onions.
Love knowing where my onion powder came from and SO much cheaper than buying it at the grocery store.
