Re: HELP IMMEDIATELY PLEASE! Dh bought the wrong wine for the recipe, will it still w

If it was labeled cooking wine, then it is salted and not suitable for poaching anyway. Sherry is also a fortified wine, which means it has a distilled alcohol added to it (usually grape brandy), so it's flavor would be stronger than white wine. In your recipe, probably a mix of white grape juice or apple juice and the sherry using a little more juice than sherry maybe even as much as 2/3 juice, 1/3 sherry could have worked out ok. I'm sorry. I know it's too little too late. My DH does this to me too or he'll try to "help" me while I'm in the middle of cooking something and I'll have to either change what I was making or "fix" it. It can be so annoying sometimes, but if I complain he would just refuse to ever help ever again. So there's really not much choice. Anyway... I hope you figured something out.
