101 uses for sherry

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

101 uses for sherry

Somehow I have managed to end up with 3 bottles of the stuff. Not bad considering I have never bought any. I've obviously reached the age where other people think that single women drink it :cry: Please help.

1. Dry sherry and lemonade
2. In chinese cooking - recipes welcome.

We put it in a gravy with pigs liver the other week and it wasn't too bad.

6. If it's dry, drink it ( I actually quite like it - and yes, I am a single woman of a certain age :oops: , but I've always liked it!)
7. If it's sweet, use for soaking fruit in for fruitcake.

If it's the dry stuff keep it in the fridge and have a glass now and again, it's lovely icy cold!
Growing old is much better then the alternative!

Mmmmm, yes.

If I could handle drinking alcohol at all, I would drink nice sherry. Oh well. Maybe it's a blessing that the stuff makes me feel ill.

Sherry is good in sauces: for meat, pasta, fish, desserts....

Perhaps with some essences of this or that, it'd make good cough syrup.

Not all gay men like it. I much prefer a real ale
