    Yeild for Onion powder

    I grew a lot of Texas sweet onions this year. Well I grow a lot of them every year . I usually grow about 300. I still have a bunch in the house storing but have been looking at ways to use them up before they are bad. Last month I sliced 2 onions on a mandolin really thin and put them in the dehydrator for almost 30 hrs.

    Then I put them on a screen rack and put them in the garage for the last three weeks. I just ran them through the Bullet blender and it made an awesome powder. With the 2 onions I ended up filling a 4oz jar ( it was 8 tablespoons of powder) to the top. I am going to cut some more onions today and and start drying so I can make some more onion powder. I will vacuum seal when done and freeze till needed.

    Living in Phoenix is nice as I can have a garden year round. I love to grow all my own things so I know whats -not in it. I use all organic compost, a lot of which I make, and use just fish emulsions and seaweed extract as fertilizers. I put bone meal, blood meal, and alfalfa meal in the soil. Almost every thing used in the different rubs and sauces from this site can be grown here.

    Did I say how much I love this site .

        Do some caramelized onions and freeze em in portions. Use them on sammiches, burgers, patty melts, add to curries, run em through processor for french onion dips.

          John I make a killer 3 onion, onion soup I have perfected through the years. I use turkey stock and white wine and a little beef stock. It's the wife's favorite thing I make. I use about 6-7 onions for about 3 quarts. Next time I make it I will write down the measurements if your interested.
