Sadiqa, thanks for the alcohol substitutes. These are great! I rarely
have any alcohol in the house and when I come across a recipe with
alcohol in it, I skip it.
Now I have an alternative!

These are a great idea, sometimes recipes I use call for wine and I just don’t have any around.
For the cherry flavoring you can also use a touch of almond extract, it tastes like cherries in small quantities
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks so much for the alternative list!! I usually don’t have any alcohol in our house either.
Thanks for sharing!

This will come in handy for a lot of recipes.

these are awesome substitutes and convenient for me too because i have most everything for every substitution ~ thank you so much! …now, is there any substitutions for cooking wines or cooking sherry?

This may be a silly question, but is there anything that can be used to substitute for beer in a batter coating for fried foods?

Thanks so much for posting these substitutes. I hate to go out and buy alcohol just for a recipe especially when it calls for such a small amount. These are great because I have most of these items or can buy it and use it for other things.

This is great. I never have alcohol of any kind in my home so I usually skip over recipes that call for it. Now I can try a few.

Thank you so much I did know a few but generally just skip over it in the ingredients and wonder what if ? I was never brought up around alcohol so didn’t feel to comfortable trying to cook with it then I married my 2nd husband who is a recovering alcoholic since he was 21 so we do not have it in the house. So this will give recipe a new flavor without bringing temptation into the house.
Even if it has been over 30years sober

I try to avoid buying bottles of alcohol just for a particular alcoholic flavor that a recipe calls for. This information is great.
