Default Cooking with Apfelwein?

I have some three month old apfelwein (from my first ferment ever), and I'm now thinking about how to use it. It's great to drink, but I was wondering if it'd be good as an ingredient for cooking? Does anyone have any recipes to use it? Obviously, it's not something in every American cookbook. Sorry if there are a lot of recipes, but all my search found was apfelwein marinated catfish (and we don't usually get cheap catfish in my area, although tilapia would probably do).

I've been thinking I might sear some pork chops, and then deglaze the pan with some apfelwein, adding salt, pepper, and butter to make a sauce, along with maybe some cider vinegar, dried cherries or onions. Does that sound good?

Of course, I'm planning on keeping some to age for a year or so, since apfelwein is a drink that continues to condition. I just enjoy it so much already, I'd like to work with it.

I gave my parents a growler full a few weeks back, they drank about 2/3 and used the rest to marinade a pork tenderloin. I didn't get to try it, but according to them it was awesome.

I've also done baked pork chops (it was winter time) with Apfelwein and cloves.

I did a braised pork roast in the crock pot with it, along with lots of onions and carrots. Came out pretty damn good

I've seen cider used in baked bean recipes.

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone! I will have to try a braise, and the baked beans sound good, too. Pork and chicken seem to be the natural pairing, as well.

Fish would probably work well also. Basically anywhere you would use white wine.
