Onion Powder on the Nesco Snackmaster Pro

sliced or chopped thin (try to make the pieces consistent in size)
Place the onions into the dehydrator. Make sure they do not touch or overlap.
Dry at 165 F for 18-24 hours, or until the onions are crispy. Smaller pieces will take less time. I cut mine big, so they took the full 24 hours.
Let cool completely then grind using a blender or blade coffee grinder (not a burr grinder).
Keep in an air-right container. I place mine in a Mason jar, cover it, then use a vacuum-sealer attachment specifically for jars to remove all of the air.
