How To Make Onion Salt

While it is very easy to just go to the store and buy your own onion salt, you might want to take a moment and see just how inexpensive and easy it is to make your own. If you have a pantry, there is a good chance that you already have sea salt and onion powder. If not, you can get them from the bulk bin at your local store. For example, at Winco, sea salt goes for around $0.24 per lb, while onion powder sells for about $3.64 per lb.

In the stores, you can purchase a 5.5 oz bottle of onion salt for around $2.93 or a 32 oz bottle for just over $12. By making your own, you can save around $1.50 for a 5.5 oz size or $8.00 for 32 oz. Oh, and by the way, you can also make garlic salt by following the same directions.

The only important part to remember, is to follow the ratio of 3:1: That is, 3 parts salt to 1 part onion powder. You can use any measuring device you wish, just keep to that 3:1 ratio and you'll be fine.

For example, let's say you just need to make a small amount; you can use a teaspoon for measurement. If you need a larger amount, you can use a 1/3 measuring cup (which is what I used when making this).
