When I find a great deal on onions, I buy a large amount and make these dried and caramelized onions. It ends up being a whole lot cheaper and more tasty than buying dried onions in bottles. You can make these in the oven, in a dehydrator, or even in the sun! To make onion powder, run the finished product in a processor.
Prep Time: 2 to 4 hours
- oil for caramelized onions (1 tsp per onion)
- Cut onions into halves, then thinly slice with knife or mandolin.
- Spread a thin layer onto a rack. If you're using sunlight, you can have your onions ready in a few hours. If you're using your oven, set temperature to 200F for about 3 hours.
- To use your dehydrator, place sliced onions on dehydrator trays and set to 125F for about 4 hours. Rotate your trays half way for even drying.
- To make caramelized onions, coat the bottom of a pan with 1 tsp of oil to every sliced whole onion. Heat to medium, cooking until browned, stirring often. It's best not to crowd the pan as they will steam up and produce water.
