Aluminium Foil and Acidic Food
I braised some oxtail at the weekend, with ingredients that included red wine and vinegar, and left it in the oven overnight covered with aluminium foil. Next morning the foil, to my horror, was corroded in the places where it was in direct contact with the oxtail.
Is this a normal chemical reaction or should I consider getting a better brand of foil?
