Onion is a vegetable and herb that resides in the same botanical family with chives and garlic. The sharp bite and lingering aftertaste of raw onion is due to the oxygenation of the same enzymes that cause watering eyes when cutting into the fresh bulb. Dried onion, whether granulated or powdered, has a milder taste, is much easier on tear ducts and has the added benefit of possessing a long shelf life. Dried and chopped or granulated onion is added directly to foods while cooking and to savory breads and rolls prior to baking. Powdered onion is used as seasoning to enhance the flavor of foods, especially dips and creamy salads.
Onion Granules, 1/4lb
The onion is known for its bold, pungent flavor profile, which is owing to a variety of phenols and enzymes in the bulb.
You can use dried onion granules in any food that you would raw, chopped onion. The primary differences between the two is that the granules won’t make you cry, will last a long time without refrigeration and give you all the zesty flavor you want without the prep work.
