Cooking tips series: Did you know that almond extract and cherry extract are interchangeable in most baking applications if you have one and not the other?

I knew that. Thought everyone knew that.
We have almond extract. Don't have cherry extract because it isn't needed. In fact I don't remember seeing cherry extract for sale at the store.

I'm actually surprised how many people didn't know this one. I almost didn't even use this it because I thought the majority would know it. However, I was busy and didn't have time to think of a better one. I'm glad that I used it now looking at the results.

I dehydrate a lot of my food. Dehydrated cherries this summer. Ground them up into a powder and put them into divinity with the same time I put the syrup in amazing dark cherry flavored divinity. Used almond extract rather than vanilla.

I did not know that, but I don't know that I've ever used cherry extract for anything.

A hint of almond extract in anything that was vanilla (& some things chocolate) was my mom's "trick" to make it special.

Good. It seems I never have the right extract on hand. I fudge a lot.

Cherry marzipan seems like it would be odd

Never needed cheery extract. Not a huge fan of cherries though

I learned this one from my Mom, thanks Mom! I almost have her talked into getting on this app because off this poll series. I'll bet she knows all my tips though since she taught me how to cook!
