If you’re cooking and missing an ingredient, you don’t necessarily need to run off to the store to get it. You might have enough stuff laying around to concoct a suitable replacement, saving you the hassle of having to stop or scrap your meal.
My Thirty Spot offers suggestions for replacing cooking ingredients on the fly.
Here are a few of them:
* Butter. Vegetable shortening may suffice if you’re baking. If you need melted butter, try oil instead.
* Baking powder. To replace a teaspoon, try 1/3 teaspoon of baking soda and 1/2 tsp. of cream of tartar.
* Corn syrup. A cup of granulated sugar mixed with 1/4 cup of water can stand in for a cup of corn syrup. Granulated sugar can also fill in for honey.
* Sour cream. Plain yogurt is a suitable replacement.
