Am getting sick of adding the wine, then waiting for it to reduce, then adding the broth and waiting for it to reduce, and then adding the butter and waiting for it to do its job thickening...
Actually instead of wine I'm using vermouth because it lasts longer in the fridge. And I'm using a whole milk/corn starch slurry instead of butter because it's lower in fat. But above is the general idea.
So, noticing a bottle of barbecue sauce in my fridge and how easy that is to use, I'm now looking for guidelines on how long I can keep pan sauces I make this way, any tips on how to prepare them so they last longer in the fridge?
Barbecue sauce has vinegar in it, that because of it's acidity, is supposed to make that sauce last longer. But my pan sauces have wine in them that should help longevity?
I know Wikipedia is no expert on cooking, but I noticed on the demi-glace page they claim that stuff lasts 6 months in the fridge or almost indefinitely frozen. It can't possibly last that long, can it?
