to freeze leftover wine for cooking
Ever had just a
glass or so leftover and a bottle of wine that you don't want
to pour down the drain but you know would be some time before
you would be cooking and need that little bit of wine? Contrary
to popular belief that alcohol does not freeze, you can easily
freeze your leftover wine in small portions so you can use
it in soups and sauces later on.
Most recipes call
for about a tablespoon or so of wine. So using an ice cube
tray, measure it tablespoon into each cube space, then freeze.
Once it is frozen, you can remove the wine cubes and place
into a Ziploc bag. Then when you need some wine in a recipe,
simply grab enough ice cubes as is required, rather than opening
a brand-new bottle.
Just be sure to
label your wine cubes with what wine type it is, because some
recipes may call for specific types of wine, or you can even
tape the bottle label to the outside of the bag.
