Substitution for Sherry in a Recipe

I found this on yahoo answers:

"I have a book called 'Substituting Ingredients' by Becky Sue Epstein and Hilary Dole Klein. In that book they say that a good substitution for sherry is either an equal amount of Madeira or Port.

Another book I have called 'Food FAQs' by Linda Resnik and Dee Brock says that you can use Madeira, Marsala, Port and Sherry interchangeably in equal amounts in a recipe. It also says that for a recipe that calls for 2 tablespoons of a heavy wine (one of those four listed above), you can substitute 1/2 cup dry red or white wine.

From - a non-alcoholic substitution for sherry would be:
2 tablespoons sherry, substitute the following:


1 to 2 teaspoons vanilla extract or 2 tablespoons orange or pineapple juice.

To substitute sherry in a marinade: for 1/2 cup sherry use 1/4 cup vinegar + 1 tablespoon sugar + 1/4 water OR
1 tablespoon vinegar, plus chicken stock or water to make 1/2 cup.

If you want general substitutions (not measured substitutions) for sherry, you can try: apple cider; non-alcoholic vanilla extract; coffee; or coffee syrup." (10/02/2008)
