Kitchen Hacks: Why You Need To Freeze Your Wine
A great way to use up any leftover wine, both red and white, is to freeze it. Freezing wine may slightly alter it's taste and therefore is perfectly suited to cooking.
You can freeze your wine easily by pouring the contents into an ice cube tray. Once the wine is frozen you can use it for up to 3 months for cooking. The alcohol content means the cubes will stay slightly soft which makes it even easier to pop. They'll melt quickly when you add them to a hot pan.
One cube is about the equivalent of two tablespoons, but this depends on your tray measurements. To get even bigger cubes you could even. use a muffin tray (this would be a cup of wine).
This is a quick and easy hack and is a game-changer for flavoursome food. When cooked the alcohol evaporates leaving behind only the flavour. White wine is crisp and brightens dishes, such as soups, creamy pasta sauces, and fish. Red wine best complements meats like beef, pork or deep stews. However, both are interchangeable and exciting to play around with. So get freezing and spicing up your dish.
