    I've tasted it unfortunately. Didn't taste like sherry at all.
    If it even contains sherry it is of the very, very, very poorest
    quality. Yes it was plenty salty!

    The first night, drink two bottles of the cooking sherry.
    The second night, drink two bottles of the "other" sherry.

    You'll figure it out.

    LOL! I'm sure Steve Wertz would get a big laugh out of this since you
    use WebTV. Me, I try not to discriminate until I find out of someone
    has something useful to post. FWIW, I like your posts. I k/f'd the
    Foodbanter domain.

    Cooking sherry is obscene salted crap. If you need a
    sherry to cook with look for Fairbanks Sherry, either
    cream if you want sweeter taste, or cocktail if you want
    a less sweet taste. Very inexpensive and good for the
    cooking purposes. Cooking sherry was devised during
    prohibition so that an undrinkable thing could be sold
    for cooking.

    You're free to check my headers at your convenience. Sometimes it
    shows Livingston, NJ; in the past it has shown Houston, TX, and at
    times it shows Atlanta, GA. I believe MSN is located in Redmond, WA.

    Salt. Cooking Sherry was designed to keep alchoholic kin out of the
    pantry. Now that do not prevent old ladies from getting drunk on the
    stuff of course. Dont get us started on Rum Cake..thanks.

    Only in the US.

    In the UK (and Europe) cooking sherry is unsalted, just the cheapest/
    worst quality sherry. You wouldn't want to drink that quality as an
    aperitif or at table.

    if you drank that while cooking though, I'll bet even the worst meal would
    taste fairly good.

    Europe didn't have prohibition.

    I'm not drinking sherry from the same bottle that I cook with, so I
    pick a lower quality (but not all the way down to Fairbanks)... I
    reach for the Christian Brothers if it's available - otherwise, it's
    Gallo.

    Does it matter? I can tell the difference. Bottom of the barrel vs.
    next to the bottom.
