Ingredients DIY'd

Hate the cost of certain ingredients?

In the middle of a recipe and missing an ingredient?

Make them yourself and save.

Brown Sugar:  1 cup sugar mixed with 2 T molasses

Mock Cream:  double the amount of dry milk to the normal amount of water

Sweetened Condensed Milk:  1 cup dry milk, 2/3 cup sugar, 3 T melted butter, 1/3 cup boiling water makes 1 1/4 cup

Self Rising Flour:  3/4 cup flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt

Corn Syrup:  substitute 1 cup sugar dissolved in 1/4 c hot water

Pumpkin:  use the same amount of cooked and pureed winter squash or sweet potatoes
