Dehydrating onions can be a tearful job, so please run your range
hood vent (if you have one) and place your dehydrator as close to it as possible ...
that will help enormously to take the onion odor out of the kitchen and away from your pets sensitive noses and nervous systems – it's poisonous to them!

This very versatile veggie is great for
use in tons of recipes: Soups and stews, you name it! And you can
grind them up for use as a powder!
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
Don't mix the two with, say, apples, when dehydrating – unless you WANT your APPLES to taste like ONIONS or GARLIC!!

You may also wish to have
your windows OPEN, or put the A/C on while you're dehydrating ... as
the very strong odor can certainly circulate throughout the whole house!

"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
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

Heed The Air Ventilation Warning Above!
Please be careful when dehydrating onions. Keep pets away as onion-odor is poisonous to them, as I mentioned at the top of this page.
If using frozen onions, ignore step 1.
- Peel and slice into 3/8" slices (or rings or diced!)
- Arrange on your food dehydrator trays, try to make sure they don't overlap
- Turn on your food dehydrator and set the temperature between 125°F and 135°F (or per your food dehydrator's instructions).
- Dehydrated onion will be leathery when fully dried.
- Drying time: between 4-12 hours.
- Please remember to rotate your trays for even drying.
Here's a cool post on ten different types on onions and it shows what the best onion is to use in a specific dish.
