I suggest you get the app SwiftKey. It suggests words as you type and you can choose which get used by tapping on them. You can also add to its dictionary.

We can't buy Nippers in ON. When I cross over into Quebec, the SAQ is on my list so I can get Nippers.

Hmmm, I didn't know following threads that don't interest me was a DC requirement Addie. At any rate, I'm sure the OP didn't have a clue either.

I've kept bottles of dry sherry for years with no loss of flavor. I also keep fresh ginger in a jar of dry sherry in the fridge. It lasts forever - both the ginger and the sherry - and I use the ginger-infused sherry in marinades.

The two best substitutes for sherry in recipes are rice wine and dry, un-oaked white wine, which would rule out most chardonnay.

Yup, same here. As Julia mentioned, the vermouth already has herbs.

+1. I really like the flavor of both sherry and vermouth in cooking.
