Question :

Dear BJ, In many of the chines recipes they use ingredient called MSG can u plzz tell me what it is.I would also like to know what Tofu is? My third Question is what is the substitute for sheery or vine in a recipe that is if we dont want to use them what can we use instead. Thank You Amna

Answer :

Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is the sodium salt of glutamic acid. It is added to the foods to enhance the flavor. It does not alter the actual taste of the food. Tofu is also known as soybean curd. It is a soft, like cheese. Tofu is made by curdling fresh hot soymilk into curd and whey. The curd is then pressed into a solid block. For sweet sherry, substitute with an equal amount of apple cider, apple juice or orange juice. For sherry, substitute with an equal amount of orange or pineapple juice or vanilla extract (2 tablespoon of sherry are equivalent 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract).
