Onion Powder

Onion powder is a dried and ground form of onion that is commonly used as a seasoning in cooking. It has a strong, pungent flavor and aroma, and is a popular ingredient in many savory dishes, such as soups, stews, sauces, and rubs. Onion powder can be used as a substitute for fresh onions in recipes, providing a more concentrated and intense flavor. It is also a convenient alternative for those who do not like the texture of fresh onions or who do not have access to them. Onion powder is widely available in grocery stores and can be stored for several months in a cool, dry place.
