NOTE: When dehydrating this pungent veggie, you may want to consider dehydrating some garlic at the same time if you've got a spare dehydrator tray or two available!

Don't mix the two with, say, apples, when dehydrating – unless you WANT your APPLES to taste like ONIONS or GARLIC!!

"I noticed that my white onions did not turn as brown as my Vidalia onions, did a little research and found that it might have to do with the sweeter onion which makes sense. I also noticed that the Vidalia seem sweeter dried then fresh which is fine with me.

I am so very happy that I found a great deal on them and dried close to 50lbs of them this spring. I did do many batches outside when I saw that the humidity was very low, with starting them outside in the morning by night the smell was almost gone when I finished them in the home."
