Slice onions thinly. 1/4" or thinner works well.
Divide slices into rings - rings dehydrate MUCH faster than whole slices.
Lay rings out on dehydrator trays - it's totally ok for them to touch and overlap.
Dehydrate at 135 degrees, for 4-6 hours, until onion slices are dry and brittle.
Using a food processor, blender, magic bullet, or even a mortar and pestle - grind dried onion rings into powder of the consistency you'd like. For coarse powder, this doesn't take long at all! Finer powder takes a few extra seconds.
Store in a tightly-sealed container, in a cool, dry location.
