Great for adding flavor to a variety of dishes. Price per ounce.
Onion powder provides terrific onion aroma and flavor, but not texture. Ideal for use in sauces and gravies, spice blends, canned foods, meats, spreads and soups. We like to use onion powder when we don’t have fresh onions around and we can adjust the flavor of a dish by adding differing amounts of the dried onion. Other times we’ll use onion powder to give a dish a more assertive flavor. Helpful Hints Add onion powder directly to any dish that has enough moisture to rehydrate the onions during cooking. If the dish doesn’t have enough liquid then it’s best to rehydrate before adding to the dish. To rehydrate just place the onion powder in a small bowl and add enough water to cover the granules. Let them soak up the water for about 15 minutes then drain off any excess liquid and add to the cooking process. Or you can also mix the powder with enough cool water in order to mix a smooth paste that can be added to the dish towards the end of cooking.
