Tips from the Farm Kitchen: Substitutions
Substituting one ingredient for another should only be done in desperation, when the necessary ingredient is not in the kitchen or readily available. Substitutions can change the flavor and outcome of the dish.
Our Substituions chart offers substitutions that can be used to achieve something similar to the original when cooking.
If you don't have: Brown sugar (1 cup)
Use: 1 cup white sugar plus 2 tablespoons molasses
If you don't have: Cajun Spice (1 tablespoon)
Use: ½ teaspoon white pepper, ½ teaspoon garlic powder, ½ teaspoon onion powder, ½ teaspoon ground red pepper, ½ teaspoon paprika, and ½ teaspoon black pepper
If you don't have: Pancake syrup
Use: ½ cup brown sugar plus 1 ½ cup water plus 2 ½ teaspoons cornstarch. Cook until slightly thickened.
