Memorize These Kitchen Substitutes

When you’re aiming for total or near self-reliance, and you want to cook mostly from your own garden or locally available organic produce, you’re probably going to run into an ingredient that you don’t have. You don’t have to give up gourmet cooking just because you can’t get a specific type of ingredient. In most cases, there are some easy kitchen substitutes that can result in a lovely meal. While the list of substitutes that could be helpful is endless, here are a few common substitutions that would be handy to have memorized (or at least stuck to the fridge!)subs
