Very interesting. I've never tried onion infused salt. Infused salts add a very interesting layer of  flavor to your foods at the table. The combinations of flavored salts are endless. I've been giving them as gifts for several years.

Where do you get your jars?

         don't
                   inhale.

Great Idea! I have been dehydrating my own onion varieties for years. It is great to just throw some flakes in the recipe instead of chopping every time and you can buy yellow onion flakes but not red or white.  Adding them to the salt would be interesting.

...also if you are going to try this don't do it in the house! Very stinky!

We sliced 8 of the Maui onions and they are in the dehydrator now, tomorrow I will grind them in the coffee mill and add to some coarse Pacific sea salt. I"ll do some photos after bottling and labels. ;D

Nice job. Those must had been large onions to get that much powder. 1.5 pounds!

They are small about 2.5 inch's that's why I went with 8 of them, there was some that didn't go into the dryer so they went in today they will just be chopped.
