Make Your Own Onion Powder
Recently, I did a blog post on making your own garlic powder. So, now we are going to try onion powder! I started experimenting with this was after learning that spice companies allow some pretty awful things in their spices such as lead and cadmium. So, with that in mind I began experimenting with making some of my own spices.
Pampered Chef Air Fryer: What A Deal!
Many ovens these days have a dehydrate setting. I happen to love my Pampered Chef Air Fryer that doubles as a a dehydrator. In fact, you can do a lot of things in this air fryer. There are several things I love about this product. First, the sides and top do not get too hot to touch. I have little ones running around, so this is just safer. The next thing I love is the oven type set up it offers. I like the racks more than I like the inner bowl set up. I used to have a Ninja Air Fryer. Another amazing thing: It DOES ROTISSERIE!!!! As you can see in the photo, it comes with a fry basket and it rotates the fries around for even cooking! Want to do skewers? Check out this accessory. What a neat feature. You get all of this for $289(skewers and fruit leather trays sold separately). If you want to host a Pampered Chef Party in March 2022, you can get it for $115.60. Contact me if you are interested. We have virtual and in person options!
Instructions for Onion Powder!
You will want to thin slice your onions. I had to do it by hand but you can use something like this to julienne. It would have taken less time if I didn’t have to do it by hand.
Next, place the onions on the dehydrate setting at 130 for 8 hours. Every once in a while, move them around on the tray.
Once they are finished, they will look like this!
Use your food processor or a spice grinder and turn it into powder!
Please let me know if you try it!
