The original recipe I have for a white chocolate ganache has rum in it. However, I have a client asking if I can make it without the rum (maybe just a rum flavoring?) b/c she's pregnant. Can I do that or will it affect the texture. Thank you!

Nope, it will not affect the texture, just the flavor. I personally don't like any liquor on mine, I just add some other kind of liquid until I get the consistency I'm looking for.

You can sub vanilla extract, but vanilla extract is the same proof as rum. You can leave it out.. it shouldn't effect anything. What's the amount of rum? If it's a tsp or TBSP then leave it out and don't worry about it. icon_smile.gif

Then the amount of rum/extract isn't going to change a thing.. nor pose a threat to anything. I'm sure if you told her you were putting vanilla extract in she wouldn't think twice and it's no different than adding rum. icon_smile.gif

Really? Wow you learn something new every day...so every time I'm adding vanilla it's just like adding liquor? MMMMMM
