Substitution for sherry in cooking

I have a recipe calling for 1 oz. of sherry and I don't want to buy a bottle for such a small amount. What can I use instead?

You can use vinegar. If you have white wine or rice vinegar, either would be better than distilled white vinegar, but any of them will work.

I think it would depend on the recipe. I wouldn't use vinegar in trifle. I would substitute some other sweet fortified wine or maybe a sweet, not fortified wine.

You can just leave it out.

I've subbed port for sherry. Balsamic vinegar might work too.

Good point, Taxi.

Kat, what are your making? I normally substitute white wine if I don't have Sherry.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm making turkey stroganoff in a slow cooker.

I second the vermouth. The next option for me would be cognac/brandy or just leave it out as Andy mentioned.

For this I'd use vermouth or a splash of vinegar.
