So for the funny story. In preparation for my first attempt at the slow cooker chicken marsala I found an old bottle of marsala cooking wine in the kitchen that my father-in-law had left during a recent visit. A few months ago he moved and left a few things he no longer needed at our house. Well the cooking wine was a wee bit older than I expected. After I had already used the Marsala for the recipe I decided to look it over. I noticed a date on it that looked like 1991. I immediately decided to call my father-in-law. His first response was that he had purchased it only a few years ago. Could a few years ago be more than 25 years ago?! He didn’t know.
I smelled and thoroughly inspected the marsala. It seemed ok. So I decided to continue cooking my meal. The marsala flavor in the dish was mild but I was fine.
