Notes

You can use white cooking wine, however a crisp or wine with high acidity that isn't sweet will yield the best results. Choose a Pinot Grigio, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc or an unoaked Chardonnay for incredible flavor. Cooking wine only has 5% alcohol whereas a bottle of wine will generally have between 10-13% alcohol.
