Questions and Answers - Vegetable Shortening
Question:I got this very promising recipe of a turkey and vegetable tart, and in it is supposed to be 1/4 cup of "vegetable shortening".
Although my English has always been good, I am not a native speaker, and I do not now what this is. I have been asking people around me, (who are not native speakers) and no one seems to know what I am talking about. - Gudbjorg Matthiasdottir (5/29/99)
Vegetable shortening is the same thing as "Crisco" shortening in the grocery store. It is sold in cans and usually is found near the oils.
