Dehydrating GREEN ONION!

Dehydrating Green Onion

Many of us grow more vegetables than we can use, when we harvest them, so, WHAT to do with your BOUNTY? Here's a quick little tip for how to save your extra green onion, chives, or any kind of onion, really! My gardens are in New England, zone 6b/7a.

I grow Red and Green Bunching Onion, Chives, and 5 varieties of bulbing onion. Watch this SHORT video, to see how I process the abundance of green onion, and use the dehydrator to save for use in my cooking, later in winter! I hear plenty of people use a regular oven, but be sure to set the oven for LOW LOW LOW temps, to dry foods, NOT cook them.

Most of you know, I prefer to grow my own food, locally. It's healthier for my family, and for the planet. I know what goes into my foods, and what chemicals are NOT in my food. Also, It cuts down on carbon emissions, less trucking, planes, trains, and boats, to get fresh foods to my table.

And that makes me smile... better for the planet, better for my own family.

Just watched the vid - pretty dope! First time, I've seen a dehydrator. Cool.

Thanks, for watching. It's a nice way to preserve fruit, onions, carrot, tomato, pepper, many other items, too. Basically, it is "low and slow"

I usually dry left over chopped parsely.. though that I just leave in a bowl and kinda rotate it towards the air until dry. That device would make drying all herbs a breeze - nice.

This is my first time of hearing the name green onions. Wow, how does it taste? Like normal red onion or a bit different? Please tell me

I grow Green, White and Red Bunching Onion. Bunching as opposed to onion that turns into Bulb. Personally I prefer the Red Bunching both for color (I love presentation when I cook), and because I think they taste slightly sweeter. But for soups and stews, any of the three colours will do when you want onion present but not the main flavor!

these are my White, Yellow, And Red Bulbing Onion:


On the right, is the Red Bunching Onion (they look like onion stalks, really, but taste similar to regular bulbing onion). On bottom of pic is the Utah Yellow Onion (Bulb)


Wow, I love what am seeing from here. The yellow onion is so attractive. Hope your garden products do bring joy to your heart?

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 166 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!

Delicioso aunque es primera vez que veo cebollas verdes 😁, conozco las moradas y las blancas

Nice video. We have some chives coming in from garden now. Plus lots of garlic. I've used my oven to dehydrate, I wish I had one of the newer ones with a dehydrate setting. I put in a thermometer and watch the temp closely. Even open the door sometimes.

hey, opening the door helps to prevent overheating... whatever it takes! LOL

That's some impressive chopping skills!

I would never think to dried up spring onion. That's only edible plant I am able to grow :D (maybe besides potato's, but we will see about that!) .

I will try this for sure:)
