One of the benefits of cooking with herbed wine is that it adds a lot of flavor with less fat. The recipes in Herbed Wine Cuisine were developed without salt and with suggestions for substituting lower fat ingredients. Today, with an even more conscious mind toward eating healthy, the recipes can be easily modified.


 Switch from margarine to butter, and/or use organic whipped buttery spread.

 Replace sour cream and cream cheese with plain nonfat yogurt.

 Substitute up to half unbleached flour with whole wheat flour.

 Buy organic berries, fruits, and vegetables, especially those with a thin (or no) peel and leafy greens.

 Buy meats that are hormone and antibiotic free.

 Buy organic eggs or eggs that are fed a vegetarian diet.

 Buy organic and natural whenever you can.


Another easy modification to the recipes is the time allowed to flavor the wines. The original recipes require a two-week waiting period for the flavors to fully developed. To use the flavored wines within eight hours, double all the flavoring ingredients, but do not double the wine. After you have used about half of the flavored wine, add more wine to fill the jar and let sit a day before using.
