Easy Cooking Tips and Substitutions

from:


Did you know that there are cooking tips and substitutions for just about every ingredient known to man? It is true. And knowing these can help you salvage a great dish when you run out of something that you need.

For most cooking tips and substitutions you will use what could be considered a cousin of the original ingredient. Normally, these ingredients will have at least some of the characteristics of the original. In some cases, the cooking tips and substitutions will require that you combine two or three offshoot ingredients to come up with something that will closely match what you are lacking.

Here are a few of the cooking tips and substitutions that most often occur:


Flour Magic
If you need self-rising flour and all you have is all purpose flour, simply add 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1/8 teaspoon salt to each cup of all purpose flour.

Bread Crumbs
When the recipe calls for 1 cup of bread crumbs but you do not have any bread crumbs, simply use 3/4 cups of cracker crumbs.

Cracker Crumbs
If you need cracker crumbs but only have bread crumbs, use 1 1/4 cups of bread crumbs for each cup of cracker crumbs called for.

Baking Powder cooking tips and substitutions
When you run out of baking powder simply use 1/4 teaspoon baking soda and 5/8 teaspoon of cream of tartar. Another alternative is to use 1/4 teaspoon baking soda plus 1/2 cup buttermilk and reduce the liquid in the recipe by 1/2 cup.

Buttermilk
If you need buttermilk, you simply replace the same amount needed with plain yogurt. You can also use 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice plus enough regular milk to make 1 cup.

Butter
If a recipe calls for butter, you can use shortening by using 7/8 cup shortening to replace each 1 cup of butter. You can also use 7/8 cup of vegetable oil.

Chocolate cooking tips and substitutions
For one ounce of unsweetened chocolate called for in the recipe, use 3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder plus 1 tablespoon butter. If you need semisweet chocolate, use 1 ounce of unsweetened chocolate plus 1 tablespoon sugar.

Corn Starch
You can use 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour for each one tablespoon of corn starch needed.

Sour Cream
If you need sour cream in a pinch, you can use one cup of plain yogurt or you can use ¾ cups of sour milk for each one cup of sour cream needed.

Lemon Juice cooking tips and substitutions
When you need a really quick replacement for lemon juice, use the same amount of vinegar as called for in the recipe.

These cooking tips and substitutions can help a lot when you most need it.
