No Cheesecloth for Cheesecloth Bag

Category Substitutions

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!
