Onion Dip

Does anyone remember me talking about my onion woes? Well here is something tasty we do with the tips! When the onions are 1st pulled we take a bunch of them and cut and clean all the greens. I then chop them up and put them in my American Harvester Dehydrator that my parents gave me 16 years ago! (as you can tell I like this machine)

Here's what they look like when they are done. Now they are ready for soups, biscuits, dips, you name it.

So now I'm ready to make onion dip. Use 1/4 to 1/3 cup of green onions (really to taste).
Place them in your coffee grinder and give it a whirl. Add salt and pepper to taste and give another whirl!

Mix in about 2 cups of your favorite sour cream or yogurt. Let stand in the refrigerator for about an hour.
Dip in your favorite veggies!


We do this with dill also!

I love onion dip, but I had never thought of making my own. Thanks for sharing!

The dip looks yummy! It's plain to see that you are indeed a frugal lady-so smart to dehydrate the tops so there would be little waste. :-)
I asked a neighbor (who has a large backyard garden) about the onions-she said that you need to wait until the tops grow so big that they appear to seed-then they will either fall over on their own or you can gently bend them over with your foot and leave them in the ground-that will be when they will bulb. So it seems that it's sort of similar to what you had with your garlic-I forgot to ask her how long you need to leave them in the ground once you bend the tops over, but I'll try to remember the next time I see her out. Happy gardening!
