Kosher Wine an Abundance What to do With It All?

We received a gift of 4 bottles of homemade Kosher wine. It's too sweet for us to drink. Any recipe suggestions? Thanks.

  1. Make it into sorbet with blackberries or blueberries.

    1. Mulled wine.....perfect for these chilly nights. Generally we add a bit of sugar, in addition to OJ, orange peel, cinnamon sticks and cloves, but I'd say if the wine is already really sweet, add everything else and then gauge how much sugar you do or don't want to make it all jive. Shavua tov y'all!

      1. Summer is coming, use it to make sangria at a summer party.

        Add spices and poach fresh figs or pears for desset.

            ahuva - yeah, Coq au Vin, braised beef ribs, a reduced glaze for duck, let it (make it) get rank and use as a vinegar. or make it even sweeter and use it in a pie filling.

            or save it for an upcoming wedding toast - Mazel Tov!

          2. If it is syrupy, you may find it drinkable by cutting it with selzer.

            In any case, it makes a good marinade for steak when combined with rosemary.
