Homemade Shallot Powder ~ Dehydrating Shallots
Some days I want to flavor my greens (other other dishes) with shallots and I don't have them on hand.
I dehydrated some shallots by finely chopping them and placing them on parchment paper on my dehydrator racks. I can't tell you how long it took, but about the same as drying chopped up onions.
I use parchment paper because it will fall through the racks, and when it's all dry. . .
I can lift the paper and fold it to slide it all down into the coffee mill I use.
I have two jars of shallot powder now in the pantry. Mmm!
Less space, less in my freezer, and until I get that root cellar built......
Ever since I re-organized those cupboards last year, the kids can find every spice and herb they could want in there now.
