I’ve got a guest tonight, and want to make my favorite Shepherd’s (really Cottage) Pie recipe. It’s heavy on the allspice and usually uses red wine vinegar. Which, of course, I’m out of. It’s snowing out. [whine]I don’t *wanna *go back to the store.[/whine]
Can I get away with white wine vinegar instead? Any changes I should make to quantity? Add anything else like sugar?
Here’s the basic recipe, iffen you’re interested. I add peas and carrots to the meat mixture before it goes in the oven, and I’ve never figured out how she makes mashed potatoes with only 1T of milk, so that’s not exactly the same in my version, but the rest is the same.
