Alcohol Substitutions in Cooking – How To Substitute For Alcohol

Pada jenis-jenis masakan tertentu sering digunakan alkohol seperti arak, ang ciu, wine, mirin dan sebagainya. Salah satu contohnya adalah pada masakan cina, jepang, juga pada pembuatan kue tart. Bahkan pada masakan lokal seperti nasi goreng sering ditambahkan arak. Oleh karena itu diperlukan alternatif pengganti khamr atau minuman memabukkan tersebut dalam masakan. Pengganti ini tentu saja tidak sama persis seperti menggunakan khamr, namun hanya menimbulkan rasa atau aroma yang mirip.

Ang Ciu : Alternatifnya adalah campuran kecap asin dan perasan jeruk limau

Mirin : Alternatifnya adalah jus anggur yang dicampur dengan perasan air jeruk lemon.

Red Wine : Alternatifnya adalah jus anggur, jus cranberry dan jus tomat.
