Balsalmic vinegar/vinegar, Tuesdays, Vanilla extract

Question:

SWRWB. Please can you give us clarity on the following. What can we do on Tuesdays and what to refrain from, eg. Removing hair, travelling, lawful intimacy, business deals, appointments etc etc. We read in a Sohba years ago that MSN said that Muharam was going to be heavily loaded with burdens and more so because it fell on a Tuesday. Also that Tuesday is day of Hellfire. Mureed said not to remove hair on Tuesday. Can Muslims use balsamic vinegar or other vinegars if ingredients include alchohol or processed that way? Can we use vanilla extract or products which have vanilla extract in it .e.g yoghurt. We cannot find anyway to make V.extract ourselves withouth alchohol or find such product on market. From homemaking process we see them using drinkable alchohol e.g. Vodka, to make V.Extract. Please pray for us. With love we greet you

Answer:

As-Salamu `Alaykum,

Alcohol cannot be used in cooking. There have been studies that shows alcohol does not cook out 100%, even if you simmer for 2 hours.
