Did you know that there are easy substitutes for alcohol if you don’t want to cook with an alcoholic beverage? We always substitute our alcohol so I have become really familiar with them.

~ You can always use a cooking wine, but be forewarned that most chefs would cringe with those because they are supposedly so different. However, I use them anyway if I don’t have a sub on hand or if I want to. ha!

Here are just a few substitutes~

Red Wine~ Cooking red wine, beef or chicken broth or stock, diluted red wine vinegar, or tomato juice.

Sherry~ Orange or Pineapple Juice (I usually do orange)

White Wine~ Chicken broth or stock, diluted white wine vinegar or cider vinegar, white grape juice with diluted white wine vinegar. When making a marinade substitute 1/4 white wine vinegar, 1 tb sugar and 1/4 cup water

Ok, that’s good for now. We can do more another day.
