1/2 teaspoon ground mace plus 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel can be substituted for 1 teaspoon ground ginger.
1 tablespoon fresh herbs equals 1 teaspoon dried herbs.
1 1/4 cups sugar plus 1/3 cup liquid (use whatever liquid is called for in the recipe) can be substituted for 1 cup honey.
1/4 teaspoon each dried oregano leaves, dried marjoram leaves and dried basil leaves plus 1/8 teaspoon rubbed dried sage can be substituted for 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning.
Milk, Sweetened Condensed
1 cup instant nonfat dry milk plus 2/3 cup granulated sugar, 1/2 cup boiling water and 3 tablespoons melted butter can be substituted for 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk.
1/2 cup evaporated milk plus 1/2 cup water or 1 cup water plus 1/3 cup nonfat evaporated dry milk powder or 1 cup skim milk plus 2 teaspoons melted butter can be substituted for 1 cup whole milk.
Note: Whole milk is higher in total fat than low-fat milk. If a baking recipe calls for whole milk, you may be able to substitute a low-fat milk variety like skim, 1% or 2% fat. Be cautious about substituting skim milk in pudding, custard and sauce recipes. These recipes rely on the dairy fat for added texture and flavor. Baked items such as cakes and cookies can usually tolerate the use of low-fat milk.
