This Chart May Be Helpful

Straws Kitchen


I was asked to post this over here.
**You may find yourself where you are out of a specified herb in a recipe or perhaps you just don't care for that specific herb.
This chart may help you choose substitutions or alternatives that will work with your recipe.

Whenever substituting, you must realize that the flavor will not be as originally intended in the recipe.
As such, it is wise to begin your substitution with half the specified recipe amount and then adjust to your own personal tastes.

You should always feel free to adjust and add to any recipe to suit yourself an your family.

It is a list I'd posted in a few groups, and was asked to post it it would be easier to print off.

If you want more information go to the web page listen in the ingredients.
