can I substitute if a recipe calls for
beverages with alcohol?
best, but not always the easiest solution, is to find another recipe without
alcohol that will fill the need. If the beer or wine is a major ingredient in
your recipe, or if a large quantity is called for, it makes sense not to attempt
a substitute. The results could be unpleasant. In such a case, look for another
the alcohol required will be a small amount, such as a couple of tablespoons,
and in this case there are several substitutions:
recipes having plenty of seasonings, plan water may be substituted. Both the
alcohol and a substitute may be omitted if the liquid isn't needed for a
gravy or sauce.
cooking with fish, an equal amount of bottled or fresh clam or fish stock
may be substituted. Just remember, bottled clam juice and some fish stocks
are high in salt. Some people use white grape juice with fish.
substitutes include chicken or beef broth
such as lemon, lime, apple or cranberry are all possibilities.
