Common Ingredient Substitution List

May 2, 2017

I have substitution lists in my kitchen, yet it seems like I can never find one when I need it. But I put it in a spot I would remember, didn’t I? Does this sound like you also? I hope I’m not the only one that losses things in “good” spots. Since I could never find my list I decided to tape it to the inside of my pantry cabinet, this was a good move. Yep, it sure was!

An ingredient substitution list is one thing every kitchen needs to have. I substitute for buttermilk the most. I do this because it is a great way to save money and reduce waste. When I need buttermilk it is only a little bit and the rest sits in my fridge and eventually I have to throw it out. I always have milk on hand and vinegar so this is perfect for me.

Need an ingredient for a recipe that you don’t have? Here is a list of some of the common substitutions.


Here is the Ingredient Substitution List pdf version if you would like to print it out and put it in a place you won’t forget, (wink wink).
