What red wine to cook with - I don't drink wine

FitMom4Life | Sep 29, 2011 10:26 AM

I don't care for wine, never have, I've tried all sorts..cheap stuff, good stuff....just don't like it. However I do believe it is a valuable ingredient in cooking. In the past, if I was making something that called for red wine, I'd add whatever I had in the cupboard (usually an old gift from someone that didn't know me well) and if I didn't have any, I'd substitute some other liquid, often chicken broth. Generally, that works well. IBut I want to make my favorite pasta sauce (arrabiata) and it does call for red wine. And I have none. I don't want to go out and buy something that I know nothing about...and I don't want to spend much money either. Any suggestions? Also, since I'll only be using a cup or so, the leftover will simply sit in the fridge for a while. How long is okay? I mean, I'm only cooking with it, not drinking it. I think I've left a bottle in the fridge for a couple of months, and used it in cooking, and it was fine. Just wondering what the concensus was, from those that are much more knowledgeable than I!
