Why does onion powder always clump (and how can you prevent that)?

Must Try

Have you just dived into a new recipe, carefully weighing all the necessary ingredients, your spices are going to be difficult. Clumped onion powder in a newly opened jar has happened to all of us. And, nothing more annoying than that! Because then see if you can get that onion powder out again. Culy knows what to do.

Clumped onion powder: help!

It is of course already an unwritten law from the old box, but spices we simply have to keep dry, dark and in a cool place. However, that sometimes gets in the way. Not a big deal you would think. And that’s right, because your spices can do without their dark burrows.

Still, onion powder is a nasty duck in the bite here. Because it seems as if a ‘fresh’ jar of onion powder is already a mess after a week. The glued spice will then no longer be able to come out. Yes, or the whole content in one block.

What to do about clumping spices? 

After some research, Culy’s Martine ended up in a fine example of higher mathematics. It was about moisture percentages compared to your herb stash, and you must have just eaten cheese. But, clarity is coming!

Normally it is best to leave your spice jars outside your spice cabinet for a while. Most herbs have a pretty wait-and-see attitude and don’t get any more or less of it. Unless you’re talking about onion powder. That’s where the calculator comes in. To make it all a bit easier – and especially to be able to leave the calculators in the closet – we looked for a solution.

The solution

It turns out: if you store your jar of onion powder in a dark , dry , but also a bit draughty place, the hassle should be all right. Now we understand that such a location is scarce and a lonely jar of onion powder in your dark garden shed is also something. And so it is a good idea to pour your onion powder (and garlic powder too) into a non-transparent, plastic box or a metal can after you get home.

Maybe you still have an old Euroma can. Your onion powder will certainly enjoy it longer. And you can always add some rice grains just to be sure, they will absorb any added moisture. Problem solved!
