It's happened to all of us at some point; that bottle of wine
that we brought back from France or found in a really great wine shop - you know, the one we were saving for a really special occasion? It peaked before we opened it, and it tastes bitter. Do we dump it down the kitchen sink? No!Bad wine
can be given a new life by deglazing a pan
with it, making a wine reduction, making homemade wine vinegar
, or using it in boeuf bourguignon
. You can make a delicious lamb ragú sauce
. Be creative! Just because it's not good to drink doesn't mean you can't cook with it.
