In addition: Beer in cooking is deeply rooted in Western Europe.It is incomparable as a cooking tool.With it's unique flavors and versatilities is it unmatched.Due to the fact that alcohol has a much lower boiling temp. than water.it evaporates quickly while cooking your recipe and thereby only leaves the characteristic taste of beer. Some ways to use beer for cooking are as follows: Marinades for beef-both tenderizes and adds flavor. Used as a substitute for water in diff. soups and stocks. Used in batters for fried foods. Added in gravies to spice up the taste.Used as a steaming base for steaming foods.(sausages,sheelfish,clams,etc.) Just remember when cooking with beer,keep your beer's primary taste in mind.Malty beers add a sweet/nutty taste while hop lagers can add a bitter/herbal flavor. Now after reading all these "good stuff" on beer,this isn't to say that ypu should go out and get "boozed up" because it's good for you.Obviously the key,as was mentioned earlier,is moderation.Drinking in excess of these guidelines has been associated with an increased risk of several serious health ailments,such as cancer,high blood pressure,and liver disease.Be warned that drinking over moderation can lead to liver damage,dangers of drunk driving,and damage to fetuses of pregnant women who are drinking. The health risks of beer: Ever heard of the 'beer belly?" In German study,Gerard Klose said dangers begin to emerge in men measuring more than 94 cms. around the middle,and become really risky at a girth of 102 cms.Too much fat,he said makes diabetis,certain forms of cancer and heart disease a distinct possibility. It's no secret that high levels of fat accumulated on the body is unhealthy and cause serious illness over time.An article in the London Times reports that fat that collects around the internal organs to form the typically male beer belly will also find it's way into the blood stream and in turn,raise your cholestero levels.This leads to heart and vascular disease and strokes. Moderation is key here,as in all things.Beer is a wholesome drink that is made from natural ingredients,but like anything that is overused or overly consumed into the body,it too can cause damage and become dangerous for us.For moderate drinkers,beer can be nutritious. Beer ,if drank in moderation,softens the temper,cheers the spirit,and promotes health. Thomas Jefferson. And that was the result of my research on drinking beer which I promised earlier.Sorry this is too long.
