Dear Nigella Team, I am really looking forward to making the lovely scone recipe. However, I have not been able to find vegetable shortening in any grocery store. Can I use butter or vegetable oil as substitute? If so, how much? Thanks
could you please tell me the british equivalent to vegetable shortning and baking soda .alismith

This Christmas I cooked your wonderful Spiced & Super Juicy Roast Turkey which was just terrific and is a MUST for each Christmas from now on. My query is. The liquid brine was left outside overnight (after using it), and, being Summer here in Australia, it started fermenting. Can it be used for anything else, maybe bottled and used at a later date?
