Help for Onion Lovers!

Issue #001, February 15, 2011

There's a "first time" for everything, so - Welcome - to the first issue of Easy Food Dehydrating Depot!

Turn On Your Range Hood!

Since our house was built before 'modern times' :-) I had this thought for those of you who are lucky enough to actually have a range hood or vent in your kitchen ...

If you want to drastically cut back on the onion aroma (not everyone enjoys it!) then may I suggest that you position your dehydrator NEAR your stove/range top, and turn on the extractor fan. I'm sure that'll help eliminate the problem. Onion odors can be a bit strong, and aren't good for pets ...

But, What's For dinner?

Funny thing is though, everyone who's ever walked in while I'm dehydrating onions always asks "hey, that smells great, what's for dinner?" -- but I know it's a totally different thing when it's NOT dinner, and you have to tolerate it for a full day!

Non-Stick Onions?

I have noticed that by dicing fresh onions versus diced frozen onions, that they DO NOT stick to my dehydrator tray sheets anywhere near as much. Could it be something to do with the amount of water that's attached to the frozen onions?

I don't know, but I will tell you this ... when I dehydrate onions, I always 'peel' them off the sheets at the half-way point of their drying time -- just to make sure they're separated so they dry more evenly.

Diced, Sliced, or Rings?

Onion Rings don't seem to present the sticking problem - nor are they as smelly, which does still make me think that fresh is best.

If you've got some 'onion tips' of your own we'd love to hear from you! Click here and then fill out the Contact-Us form on the page and let us know!
