Make Your Own (MYO) green onion dip mix

So, Lance and I love green onion dip!  We eat a lot of it, but I hate paying for those little packages at the store.  And, I like being able to say I made it from scratch.  So, I set out to figure out how to make my own version of it.  I think it is pretty close to the store packages.

Green Onion Dip Mix

1/2 tsp dried green onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chicken bouillon granules

Mix together and store in a baggie or other container.  To use:  Mix the mix with 1 cup of sour cream and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

To Make dried green onion powder:  Clean green onions and cut into 1 inch pieces.  Place in dehydrator or oven at 145° for 6 hours.  Once dry, place in spice/coffee grinder and powder it or place in a ziploc bag and use a rolling pin to powder it.

This is perfect for using the tops of all the onions growing in your garden.

To make a large batch:

Mix 1/4 cup dried green onion powder with 1/2 cup of chicken bouillon granules and 2 tablespoons of garlic powder.  Store in a half pint or pint jar or any air tight container.
