Foundation. Flavor. Food.
The onion, Allium cepa, is better known as the bulb onion or the common onion and is the most widely cultivated species of the genus Allium(not to be confused with Alum powder which is used in pickling). Garlic is the other well known member of the Allium genus Dehydrated Onion is considered by most to be a spice and onions are more commonly used fresh (where as more dehydrated garlic is consumed worldwide than fresh garlic). Our Onion Powder is made from ground, dehydrated white onions, most frequently the pungent bulb onion variety and you'll notice a potent onion aroma.
Add onion powder directly to any dish that has enough moisture to rehydrate the onions during cooking. If the dish doesn’t have enough liquid then it’s best to rehydrate before adding to the dish.
To rehydrate just place the onion powder in a small bowl and add enough water to cover the granules. Let them soak up the water for about 15 minutes then drain off any excess liquid and add to the cooking process. Or you can also mix the powder with enough cool water in order to mix a smooth paste that can be added to the dish towards the end of cooking.
In September of 2019 our Chef/Owner, David Humphrey, started A&H Provisions to help bring a local option for spices to the Atlanta, Georgia area. An option that will give local residents the ability to have a spice merchant help them make the right choices when purchasing their spices. We will source our product so as to provide you with freshest product possible.
