...most of the time, when I am cooking while following a recipe, it will tell me to add "dry" red wine, "dry" sherry, or "dry" white wine. Having never heard of this term in my childhood, I am perplexed as to what it means. Every time I see this in the list of ingredients, I always get the picture in my head of red or white wine that is used in the liquid form (like the regular wine drinks we have from time to time). Is this some kind of powder that is mixed into the recipe or is it something else? Thanks in advance for any enlightenment!
