I've got a half-full wine box of white wine that's started to go a bit stale (not totally off, but not very tasty). What can I do with it?

I store white wine in the fridge for ages to throw into pasta sauces etc. You can also freeze it in ice trays so that you've got handy amounts lurking at all times.

Could you make a risotto (eg prawn) that uses wine instead of stock?

Throw it away. Using nasty wine will not enhance the flavour of anything i'm afraid.

In fact you could end up just ruining other ingredients.

oh dear. I was on a roll there in my head, ooh bread and butter and butter pudding (my mother does a superb one with lemon curd) or summer pudding mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

[must read thread title PROPERLY]

big load of lemon chicken in white wine sauce maybe?

Lordy I have such a lust on for summer pudding now

If it tastes unpleasant I wouldn''t put t in food TBH.

Thanks for the ideas. And in my defence, it's a box not a bottle, and I'm TTC grin.

I would def refrigerate and/or freeze. Here's the thing about wine-you can drink cheap wine from great glasses or great wine in cheap glasses but never have both-cheap wine in cheap glasses. I'd say something similar applies to cooking with wine as well.

Pour it down the sink or on the garden, though might not do wonders for the flowers.

Or marinade-the determining factor for me-whether to compost or cook it-would be would I drink it or not?

Or as liquid in a sauce-I can't see how this wine could be worse than the wine that is sold, in the States at least, as "cooking wine". It's absolutely wretched!

Don't cook with it if you are not prepared to drink it.
