Cooking with ruby port?

nooodles | Jan 9, 2006 04:54 PM

I have some Dow's late vintage port that I'd like to try cooking with. Does anyone have a favorite recipe? I've never cooked with port, marsala, or madeira, so I'm not sure where to begin cooking with sweet wine. Red wine and white wine I've cooked with before.

I'm wondering if there's a way to thicken the port for use in salad dressing. The port itself is a bit one dimensional and very sweet, so I think it would be nice in a sweet red wine vinaigrette with dark salad greens and baby spinach. I just have no idea how to go about thickening the port for such a use.
