Herb Switches - Alternative Herb Substitutions

Sometimes when preparing food you find that you are short of a herb that is important to this recipe. It could be that your supplies have run out or it is not in season at that time. This usually means that your intended recipe would have to be put off for another time. This doesn't have to be the case. I found some alternatives for herb ingredients you can use instead. This list will help you pick a herb substitution and should work well with your chosen recipe. The flavour obviously will not be as desrcibed in the recipes so I suggest you just add half the said amount and work your way with more if needed later.

Sometimes a brand new recipe creation is found by a little experimentation using the suggestions that are given here. The rule is to not deviate too far and taste as you go along.
