You might want to add a just a few drops of white wine vinegar or rice wine vinegar to the extra broth - it will add some of the acidity that the wine in the original recipe would have added. Good luck!

Extra broth is fine. Next time buy some if the little single serving whites. They are perfect for cooking!

I'm guessing you meant broth... that's a good non-alcoholic alternative.

Any dry white wine that is not oaky is always preferable to the apcray sold in supermarkets as "cooking wine." In fact, please don't buy that stuff again. It it very expensive, is of very low quality and has a lot of added salt. If you're worried about not using up the wine before the bottle goes bad, try buying the 4-paks of single serving bottles that Sutter Home offers. OTOH, Julia Child used and recommended dry white vermouth as an alternative to white wine. Because it's a fortified wine, it keeps quite a bit longer than white wine after its been opened. And it has the added bonus of 13 herbs in it, which enhance the flavor of any dish it encounters.

I'm not a big wine drinker, due to sulfites, so generally don't buy wine. I was hoping to try a new recipe, without going out in the currently yukky weather to get the only ingredient I don't have. Lol. I'm thinking I'll just increase the amount of brith needed. :)

Is this for a recipe?

Yes. I thought I had white cooking wine but do not. :(
