    Default cooking with red wine

    I put dinner in the slow cooker this morning for a beef casserole and added a cup of redwine without really thinking...Am I able to give any of this to my DS 17months? Does the alcohol cook off? I'm thinking I will just give him something else, but what are others thoughts?

    It's fine. I cook with alcohol all the time, the majority of it cooks off.

    Agree it is fine, most cooks off plus it is a cup in a whole big slow cooker so the amount of alcohol he would get if any is very small

    I agree with others in that it is fine. DH is a chef and he said that alcohol in wine cooks of incredibly quickly when using it in cooking! We use red wine all the time in our sauces.

    Thank you! It is slow cooking for about 8hrs so I would say just about all alcohol will be cooked out 👍
