    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.
    Just paying in forward in kindness!

    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.
