DIY Garlic Powder
Note: Be prepared for your house to fill with the very strong scent of garlic during the dehydration period.
This process also works for onions, and I took the opportunity to do a tray of each simultaneously without damaging the flavor of either. Out of one 13-ounce white onion (chopped fine), I was able to produce 1/2 cup of dried flakes, which reduced to 3 tablespoons of onion powder. It's ultimately a small amount, but it has a delicate, sweet taste—like a fried onion ring—which is quite attractive.
