Both of our kids are learning to cook with wine. The fundamentals of a good wine sauce or a reduction is going to make them that much of a better cook as they get older.
Understanding things like why wine is good to break down meat because of the acidity helps them learn some of the science behind it.

What do you cook with red wine?
You can make everything from soups, stews, rice, pasta, to many meat and seafood dishes.
What red wine is good for cooking?
A good quality red wine is better for cooking. I always recommend cooking with a wine that you would have no problem drinking.
If it is not good enough to drink, do not add it to your food. Oftentimes when cooking bad wine the heat can intensify the bad taste.
What can you do with unwanted red wine?
If you have wine that has gone bad, shame on you. Just kidding, it happens. Don’t toss it out.
Put it inside the compost pile, you cannot leave wine around. If you have the leftover wine on hand you might put them in the garbage pile.
They act as compost accelerators since they contain incredibly good nitrogen and moisture, yet balance their content with dried materials to keep their surface.
Be careful though too much could harm the good bacteria. But a bottle in a large compost heap should be just fine!
Fruit Fly Trap
Have old red wine, it can be used to eliminate fruit flies. Leftover wine is a handy trap and is simple to make.
Fruit flies like wine because they are attracted to vinegar in addition to the vinegar as it helps eliminate pest populations.
How To Make A Homemade Fruit Fly Trap
Grab a shallow dish, add two tablespoons and a couple drops of dish soap and gently combine. Sit on the counter where you have the largest concentration of fruit flies.
