  • Is it possible to freeze wine for future use? AttilaNYC

    I wanted to freeze some leftover wine (about half a bottle) to use for cooking at a later date.

    • Will it keep at all?
    • Are there any special ways to freeze it?
    • Would freezing it in the bottle be safe?
    • Should it be defrosted first before using, or can I use it straight out of the freezer?

  • I tried freezing leftover wine many years ago, and it does work. You can just freeze it in the original bottle.

    The flavors are somewhat muted compared to the same wine unfrozen. Not recommended for drinking the wine, but it is acceptable for cooking purposes.

  • Be aware that freezing it in the bottle may break it, it's because the frozen water increases its volume when becomes ice

  • I have tried this, but not in a bottle, only in icecube containers. They are ok for putting in something like gravy or a bolognaise but I wouldn't use it in anything where wine is a main ingredient, like Coq au Vin.

  • I've probably only made tempura 10 times in my life, with fairly inconsistent results. often it has been heavier than the best restaurant versions I've had.

  • I've fallen in love with this picture. I am wondering how I can make the white chocolate layer. My guesses are: option A: use a bottle and "pour" melted white chocolate above it -- downside: ? the chocolate wouldn't get nice and smooth as in the picture. option B: use a 2 pieces plastic moulder(like when making Eastern eggs) and "pour" white chocolate above it. Once poured use a different but smaller plastic shell and place it in the moulder in order to flat the chocolate. Any suggestions?

  • I got in a "heated" discussion with my wife this evening about a fried turkey recipe that I want to try for Thanksgiving. It calls for: 1 cup of Creole seasoning 1/2 cup of black pepper 1/2 cup of Cayenne pepper all mixed with a bottle of a bottle of italian dressing, which I will admit sounds pretty damn spicy. But after readying the reviews it seems like everyone says the heat cooks off and the bird comes out delicious. It it reasonable to expect that the spiciness will fry off during the cooking process or am I going to ruin (another) Thanksgiving?
