    Hi,
    I know we can use lemons in cooking, can we use lime juice or zest too? I have a Thai recipe I want to try but will steer clear if it's not allowed.

    Also, I know we can use vanilla extract but it has to be one without alcohol. Unfortunately, mine does contain alcohol so I was wondering if I could use a vanilla pod for flavouring instead?

    Thanks.

    Not sure about limes but would have though it would be same as lemons.
    Yes to vanilla pods though :) xx

    I wouldn't worry too much about the alcohol in the vanilla essence. I have some Duan flavourings and I'm pretty sure they have alcohol in. If used sparingly the alcohol should burn off.

    I agree, I brought some asda flavourings and added to my yogurt the last few days and it hasn't affected my losses at all. If it does then I'll change. One flavouring was ok the other did have alcohol but I used less then a 1/8 tsp as it's so strong :)
