So.. do Mormon’s cook with wine? I ask since I posted a recipe that called for a half cup of wine, and since the alcohol is cooked out of it made me wonder.
Good Question! Yea, Mormons are generally fine cooking with wine. Some members of the church won’t – or would strongly prefer not to, but I don’t think it’s really much of a big deal to most Mormons either way. There has never been any official clarification from the institutional church about whether cooking with wine is ok, so folks just decide for themselves.
However, the hardest part of cooking with wine is that you have to BUY wine, which many members of the church would struggle with. Mormons really don’t want to be seen buying alcohol of any kind, because they want to set a good example, and because then people whisper and say “OMG, why is so-and-so buying wine? Must be breaking the Word of Wisdom! Naughty! Naughty!” Or because they don’t want to financially support alcohol companies. But, you know, I guess if you want to cook with wine, you’ve just gotta get over it.
