I bought port for a plum tart and now its just taking up space on my bar. I wouldnt really drink it straight but would love some ideas on how to cook with it. Its pretty decent quality for what thats worth. Thanks!

  1. my first thoughts were braised short ribs, a reduction for a beef tenderloin or filet, or a dessert sauce, but there are plenty of other possibilities!

    1. Have fun!

      This first recipe doesn't use very much port, but it's something a little different:

      The port will work for a pan sauce, and it might be fun to try a kitchy cheeseball.

      1. I went to Epicurious and searched for port as an ingredient. Came up with 166 recipes. Good place to start:

        1. Get yourself a nice hunk of Roquefort and enjoy the two together. I do not like either port or Roquefort on their own, but the two together is a match made in heaven.

          1. Pears poached in port, fresh grated ginger and honey or sugar - delicious. After the pears have softened, remove them and boil the sauce down. Serve warm, room temp or cold with the reduced sauce and a little greek yogurt or whipped cream.
