Oops, Rice Wine or Rice Wine Vinegar?

†I have a recipe that calls for rice wine. I accidentally bought rice wine vinegar. Would this make a big difference in the taste of the sauce that I am making?

†Ask yourself this: if you had mistakenly bought white wine vinegar instead of white wine, would you consider making the substitution? A wine vinegar is wine that has been soured naturally or artificially. You don't really want to use a soured wine in your recipe, do you? The fact that itís made from rice instead of grapes isnít relevant.

If your recipe calls for a modest amount of rice wine, though, you could probably substitute a sweet white wine or even white grape juice without substantially altering the flavor of your dish.
