Just curious...anyone use onion juice or garlic juice?
 
I was making some jerky marinade which called for tablespoons of onion powder and garlic powder. I noticed when adding it to the liquid, it didn't all dissolve, the powders just kind of floated. I heated the liquid, but still the powders didn't fully dissolve.

I was thinking of net ordering some garlic juice and onion juice to use instead of the powders, but have not heard much of anything about them.

I don't know much about them either. I used to see them on store shelves years ago but haven't noticed them recently.

I was considering purchasing a mortal and pestal and grinding them finer. :lol:

Stir, stir, whisk, whisk your powders into your liquid. They should incorporate after that.

I haven't seen any liquid onion or garlic either.

For the reasons you mentioned, I actually use onion juice in a couple of salad dressing recipes when I don't want pieces of onion. I used to grate the onion to make juice, until I found a serviceable product in a bottle made by Howard's. It's much more convenient and the ingredients label is acceptable to me (and I am picky about natural ingredients). It needs no refrigeration and seems to keep forever.

I've never tried garlic juice.

It may be the liquid I suppose, also. Teriyaki and brown sugar. Well heated and stirred so the brown sugar got dissolved, same after adding the powders...well stirred, whisked. Maybe it's what's in the liquid that keeps the powders from dissolving fully. That's what got me thinking of buying the liquid forms of both.

We have a stone bowl and a stone crusher and I think the name of it is mortar and pestle.

It's easy but it takes the work, just peel the garlic and crush it and do the same of the onion. If you need of the garlic juice quickly, the jars of the minced garlic has liquid of them and you could screen out of the garlic and get the juices.

I may buy the juice for the ease of it all.

"...mortal and pestal", ha!, I laugh at myself. I must have been thinking how the gods grind things exceedingly fine.

Ha! That was a misspelling, yes?

When I first arrived of here, my spelling was very bad, for I had learnt English but I came with the built-in mistakes.

A miss think is more like it.

"The wheels of the gods grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly fine" must have crossed my mind.
hhehe...mortal and pestal.
