Dehydrating Onions ~ The Easy Way!

While onions might smell delicious to us humans, remember this:

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.

  1. Peel and slice into 3/8" slices (or rings or diced!)
  2. Arrange on your food dehydrator trays, try to make sure they don't overlap
  3. 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.

Onion rings before and after dehydrating



Mj from Michigan Wants to Share This:

"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."
