I keep empty spice bottles to store my homemade powders in.  Of course, store-bought onion powder is very inexpensive, but it's fun to make my own, and I think it has a more oniony taste.

Homemade Onion Powder
Peel onions and slice very thinly.  Dry in your oven or dehydrator.  When dry, place the slices into a blender and blend into a powder.  Store in a shaker container.
Oven-drying:  Place slices in a single layer on a cookie sheet and dry in a 120 F oven.  Turn slices periodically.
Dehydrator:  Place slices in single layers on trays, with sides not touching.  Turn pieces and rotate the trays periodically.
Either method of drying will take several hours, depending on how thick your slices are.
Place dried garlic slices in a blender and blend into a powder.  Store in a shakeable container.
