No Cheesecloth for Cheesecloth Bag

1 0EmailPrintFollow

When the recipe calls for tying up seasoning in cheesecloth bags and you don't have cheesecloth, use coffee filters and stitch them together or fold in a pkg. and staple shut. (Example: pickling spice in cooked chile sauce) Works great!

Thanks for the advice, Im getting ready to make some hot pickled eggs an I forgot the cheesecloth, now I can make my eggs and not have to go back to the store.

You can cut a 6" x 6" square from a clean but old t-shirt and bind the ends with a rubber band to make it look like a little ghost and discard after use. Since I'm out of old t-shirts, clean ones at least, I'll try the coffee filter for my rhubarb syrup. Spanks for the tip. Out!

You can also use a tea ball. I used one before and it work fine
