No Cheesecloth for Cheesecloth Bag


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!

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!
