Smoked Onion Powder

Recipe adapted from Nicolaus Balla, Bar Tartine, San Francisco

Yield: about ⅓ cup

Cook Time: 10 to 12 hours


1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced on a mandoline

1½ teaspoons smoked salt


1. In a dehydrator, add the onions to the trays, making sure the onions don't overlap. Turn on the dehydrator and set the temperature to 145° and dehydrate for 10 to 12 hours, or until the onions are fully dried.

2. Remove the onions from the dehydrator and process in a spice grinder until a powder forms. Add the smoked salt and grind until a fine powder forms. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
