ALCOHOL IN COOKING

Contrary to what most people believe, and that includes most professionals, when using beer, wine or other alcoholic beverages in recipes, a lot of alcohol still remains after cooking.

Here are the facts from the Agricultural Research Service of the USDA (1989).

ALCOHOL IN COOKING
Alcohol remaining after preparation:

    100% Immediate consumption
    70% Overnight storage
    85% Boiling liquid, remove from heat
    75% Flamed

    Baked or simmered:
    40% after 15 min
    35% after 30 min
    25% after 1 hour
    20% after 1.5 hour
