Default Cooking with mead

Has anyone ever tried cooking using dry or sweet meads? I have bottles sitting around that I think would be interesting to try in a recipe, but I'mm not really sure WHAT to try. I could imagine maybe making some sort of a glaze with a sweet mead?

Any ideas?

mead can be used just about any time wine/champagne would be called for in a recipe.

off the top of my head: a sweet mead braised chicken/pork sounds delicious, a dry mead poached fruit would also be great, and i routinely use mead in the water pan for my smoker. that always turns out fantastic, no matter what meat you use.

Braising with mead is very delicious indeed. Deglaze a pan with mead for a crisp pan sauce. Poach a pear with mead.

OR, just go viking. Roast a big hunk of meat. Tear it into bits and drink copius amounts of mead beside an open fire.

I like the viking approach

Poached fruit sounds like a fantastic idea, I haven't thought of that!
