Any ideas? Can I freeze it? How long will wine be good for in cooking before it goes bad?
Sent by CherieEditor: Cherie, first of all, we have to admit we're pretty cavalier about wine for cooking. We've been known to leave open bottles (tightly re-corked) in the refrigerator for up to two weeks, and then turn around and use it in a stew. The flavor deterioration that would bother us if we drank old wine tend to not be an issue when cooking with it.
You can also freeze it. Some people freeze wine in ice cube trays or in small baggies.
Readers, how do you deal with storing leftover wine for cooking?
