1 cup shortening, solid (used in baking) = 1 & 1/8 cup butter. Reduce salt in recipe by 1/2

1 cup shortening, melted = 1 cup cooking oil

I never knew there was a 'ratio' in this. I am 68, I used veg oil for everything, amounts the same. A cup of one meant a cup of the other.

I don't remember where I got this information for substituting oil for butter/margarine, but I use the same measurements to substitute oil for shortening.

Butter/Margarine = Oil
1 tsp - 3/4 tsp
1 tbsp = 2 1/4 tsp
2 tbsp = 1 1/2 tbsp
1/4 cup = 3 tbsp
1/3 cup = 1/4 cup
1/2 cup =1/4 cup + 2 tbsp
2/3 cup = 1/2 cup
3/4 cup = 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp
1 cup = 3/4 cup

Olive oil is the best choice, because it is 77% monounsaturated (the "good" fat)

In some cases the substitution is not wise. Shortening is solid at room temp. Oil is not. The difference would be in the texture after cooking. Butter and shortening would be almost the same but some foods would be of a heavier texture when cooked with shortening than with oil.

It looks like you can use oil and melted shortening in equal amounts. So the ratio would be 1:1. Let us know how it turns out.

Usually, fats are substituted in a 1:1 ratio. So I would try 1/4 cup lard instead.
