Brandy Extract

Brandy Extract is meant to give a brandy flavour without the cook having to use alcohol to get it.

It gives a concentrated brandy flavour, which would otherwise require a much higher quantity of brandy when that amount of liquid wouldn't be appropriate in a recipe.

Most brandy extracts actually do contain, however, a very small amount of alcohol, making them out of bounds for Muslims. The Clubhouse brand contains the following ingredients: Propylene Glycol, Water, Alcohol, Artificial Flavour, Colour.


Another flavouring extract such as vanilla or rum, or per qty of Brandy Extract called for, an equal quantity of apple or white grape juice, or just water.


5 tablespoons of brandy = 1 tablespoon brandy extract

"Give us this day our daily taste. Restore to us soups that spoons will not sink in and sauces which are never the same twice. Raise up among us stews with more gravy than we have bread to blot it with Give us pasta with a hundred fillings."

-- Robert Farrar Capon (American Episcopal priest and author)

    And what's the day afterward, National Recovery from Vodka Day? For some people, Vodka Day comes more than once a year -- and they know by 9 in the morning whether it's going to be a Vodka Day or not. If you're a classic Martini person, today might be a good day to deviate and enjoy a cold, clear vodka Martini.
