    You are welcome, I think the site is pretty detailed so I refer to it once in awhile, even for simple things...I may not be a great cook yet, but I'm working on it.

    One thing I find entertaining is the fact that many of the substitutions are things that you would never find in a kitchen! I've never heard of a kohlrabi, but celery is a kitchen staple!

    However, thanks for posting this. Because of where I live it's hard to find certain items, and I'm sure this will help me out!

    Another great website for food substitutions is http://www.foodsubs.com . I discovered this gem in a Real Simple article one day, and now it's one of my most visited sites!

    I've substituted salsa for tomatoes -- with the understanding that I wasn't making Italian Chicken anymore but rather was now making Southwest Chicken and needed to adjust other seasonings to match.

    A jar of salsa, a tsp of cumin, a pinch of celery seed, and a dash of hot sauce Or a couple envelopes of taco seasoning can rescue chili from the dreaded discovery that your chili powder has faded and gone tasteless.

    Milk soured with vinegar will make your biscuits rise nice and light when you find out at the last moment that the kids just drank the last of the buttermilk, but it won't taste 100% right so adding something like dill weed and dried onions or caraway seeds and raisins to the dough to cover up the lack can be helpful.

    If I hadn't any fresh or dried basil around I might have a jar of pesto.

    If I hadn't any anise seed fennel might do. But a drop of anise extract that I have for baking or a dash of Sambuca might work better.

    I'm more inclined to change what I'm making to accomodate the ingredients I have than to make substitutions. If its a simple Rosemary Chicken and I drop the rosemary jar its no big deal to make Greek chicken with oregano and lemon instead. But I don't trust substitutions for parts of a complex harmony of flavors. icon_smile.gif


    This cracked me up! My kids would have rather cleaned their rooms than drink buttermilk! But I have substituted yogurt for buttermilk a few times....

    I would seriously drop the agar-agar sub with gelatin. Agar agar is vegetarian and vegan friendly, while no way in hell is gelatin. So make sure your guests are okay with eating gelatin which is made from animal bone and hide.

    This sub is about achieving the same texture, which gelatin will accomplish. (This thread is about functional kitchen equivalents, not about nutritional or specialty substitutions.)

    Actually Agar Agar going to be very different. It has nothing to do with Vegetarian. It is hard for someone to work with for the first time. Fail rates tend to be high and it cannot and I repeat CANNOT sub for gelatin in all dishes. If someone cannot use gelatin in a recipe, it is best if they don't try that dish with agar agar. You will end up with very different results and it might fail. There are some very good recipes online and also at Zaar for agar agar if anyone wishes to try it. You need to work with a recipe formulated just for that. Otherwise it is a crap shoot as to the success of the recipe.

    If the person is vegetarian or vegan, don't use gelatin. If they are not, use gelatin. If they are Vegetarian or vegan use the agar agar but use a formulated recipe just for agar agar. Zaar has at least 66 recipes using it as an ingredient.

    You may have to cut and paste that link because it won't give you correct results if I edit out the []. With Troy and Gay's site, I could edit them and get the same results now... Ah the wonders of Food Network. NOT. icon_confused.gif
