So for dinner tonight I am making shanks in the slow cooker and the recipe calls for a cup of red wine. Would you feed it to your 1yr old? I do have other options but I like her to eat whatever we are eating where possible and she did help cook it. So Yay or Nay?

The longer it cooks, the more alcohol boils off so you should be perfectly fine with the slow cooker.

Shouldn't be an issue. You could replace it with beef stock next time if you'd prefer.

I do all the time. Alcohol cooks out.

Not all the alcohol cooks out, this is a myth. However the longer it is cooked the more is cooked out, I think a slow cooked casserole only leaves 5% of the alcohol in it. Which split between portions is such a tiny amount I wouldn't worry about it.

I wouldn't even think twice about it. The amount of alcohol she would actually digest would be minute.

Yup, it's a myth that all the alcohol cooks out.
Here's one table to give you a guide:
So slow cooker, on for hours, should be very low. I'd happily feed it to my daughter.
