    Butchers Twine Replacement?

    I'm have company for dinner tonight and my pork roast recipe includes Butchers Twine to secure the pork. I have no Butchers Twine! Any replacement recommendations? THANKS!

    Any kitchen supply store and many hardware stores have kitchen twine.

    ...and if the ordinary sewing thread you have proves to be too weak, try unwaxed dental floss.

    I use regular cotton string for tying up my roasts.

    Butchers Twine Replacement?

    I have heard on a couple of TV cooking shows that only 100%
    cotton sewing thread should be used as a substitute for
    kitchen twine. Be careful, as a lot of the thread today has
    polyester in it and can be harmful under roasting/cooking
    conditions (heat).

    I have used 100% cotton sewing thread in a pinch, and it has
    worked well. Use double, triple, or quadruple strands to tie
    your food. Less chance of thread letting go.

    Hope this helps.
