What a Pong

If only we had scratch and sniff screens, then you would be able to smell the pong left behind after dehydrating a few onions. Peeling and chopping them is bad enough, but this was eye watering on another level. The window and door of the utility room has been open for 2 days and it still pongs but on a positive note, the onions look great after 10 hours of drying. I had a nibble of one piece and the flavour was so intense, the drying had really concentrated the flavour. They will be great as a perfect standby to add to a soup or pasta sauce. But, if I do these again, the dehydrator is being relegated to the garden.

  1. They do look good, even if you had to put up with the smell. Look on the bright side, no cold germs will get through the tug. Xx

    1. 😀 I knew what you meant. Touch wood, no colds here for a while but the smell will also keep the demons away x

  3. What patience you had to get those onions skinned and sliced ready for dehydrating, but doesn't it feel good when you see a jar full of dehydrated produce!

    1. The slicing was worth the effort even though the smell is still lingering. I love the satisfaction of creating something yourself x

  5. It would be a shame not to have dried onions in your store cupboard. A job for an outbuilding next time I think x

    1. Good idea, but the cave needs to be kept cool and the dehydrator gives off a bit of heat. Plus we have produce in there and we don't them smelling oniony like Rogers coat. He wore it to French yesterday and had to put it at the back of the room because it smelt so much :) x
