my grandfather was a big fan of spanish onions

he grew his own, and would take a big onion, slice it into rings, and make raw onion sandwiches with sharp old cheddar cheese on rye

@Foxfyre,
I don't know about onion for sure, but I know Penzey's has garlic in many jarred forms, including granulated garlic, and suspect they might do granulated onion sans the salt, if that matters.

I use granulated garlic once in a while, generally last minute stuff. I'll miss it when it runs out.

@djjd62,
throw a sardine into the middle of that sandwich and you'll have my late uncle's fav

hamburger and I went over to check on his brother and sister-in-law when they had Hong K0ng flu - Chally was sitting in the kitchen, cutting up thick slices of raw onion to put on his sardine/rye bread sandwich <shudder>

@ehBeth,
Don't know how much salt is actually in onion salt. It tastes way more oniony than salty to me, but we don't need to dodge salt though I do try not to overdo it. It doesn't take much sprinkled on those frying potatos/onions to give them a wonderful special flavor.

Oh, that sounds good, djjd!

@Foxfyre,
My husbands Grandaddy use to eat a raw onion before he ate his dinner in the Spring. Apparently the cows ate the wild onions and made the milk taste like onions. So he took care of the problem by eating the onion so he wouldn't taste it in the milk. Yuck.

About a year ago I bought a 3 pound bag of dehydrated onions and a 1 pound bag of granulated garlic from Bulk Foods. I save huge gobs of money now by making my own powdered onion and powdered garlic with it. About once a month, I just grind up a fresh batch of the powdered versions and fill up my seasoning jars. The versions in the grocery stores are about 3 times as expensive as what I produce with these. I also use the granulated garlic with peppercorns to make my own versions of garlic pepper. I do the same with dehydrated lemon peel and now have lemon pepper whenever I want.

@ossobuco,
Yeah, I met Michael via Orkut almost 5 years ago in one of the cooking communities there. He was just starting his website then and needed help with some recipes. It has really expanded and grown in popularity since then.

Got to put that in my flog list.

@ossobuco,
Butrfly, I posted something from the site some time ago (two years?) and remember Jespah liking the site. Smacks self, I have to look at it more.
I remember it for the sanity.
