suet replacement

I was wondering if anyone knew if I could replace suet with something else. Can't get suet and I see too many recipes that I would love to make but they contain suet.

Suet.

This comes up time and time again on here. Frozen grated butter can be used instead, although I use Atora vegetable suet.

Thank you James for your info - I thought I had seen something years ago, but couldn't find any reference to it

suet replacement

Hi Marilyn, I dont use suet (I'm a bit lazy and lily livered when it comes to handling suet!!) I use butter but I steam it in a pudding basin. If you are going to boil the pudding in a cloth it is better with suet. My mother-in-law uses a packet suet mix which seems OK but I haven't used it.

no suet

Last year I used a recipe that uses no suet or breadcrumbs and it was the first Xmas pud I've liked. Doing it again this year. It uses grapeseed oil.

Suet

Handling suet? Has no one told you it comes in a packet nowadays?

I know the contestants on Professional Masterchef had to tackle suet in situ, but most people buy it in the supermarket.

suet

thanks all for your input, but i can't get suet even in packages - not available in the netherlands - can only order from butcher real kidney fat, but i wasn't really into this.

Suet

Real suet isn't too bad, you just have to pick out the bits you don't want, and grate or finely chop the bits you do!

But, butter works well as a substitute.
