Recipe: Chimichurri Sauce
Just listen to the word. Chimichurri. It dances right out of your mouth. I bet you’ve already paused and said it in your head more times than I’ve written it. If the word alone feels this good in the mouth, wait until you taste it. Chimichurri is an Argentine sauce that is traditionally used on meats, although I can think of about fifty other ways to eat it. It’s used in Argentina the way we use ketchup in the U.S.

Flavor Combinations: Beans, Herbs, and Spices
With all the bean talk this month, we started thinking about which herbs and spices go well with specific varieties of beans. In general, most beans go well with herbs like parsley, rosemary, sage, savory, and thyme. You usually can’t go wrong with garlic and onions, either. Specific kinds of beans, like fava beans or mung beans, have other affinities with particular herbs and spices.This is not to say that other combinations won’t work.

Recipe: Pear Compote with Ginger, Vanilla & Lime
A fruit compote is a good thing to have on hand, especially if it’s as versatile as this one. As is, you can encourage its sweetness by serving it over yogurt for breakfast or over ice cream for an after-dinner dessert. Stir in a little cracked pepper or minced thyme and you’ll encourage a savoriness that goes well on a cheese tray. A touch of minced chili and a little more lime juice and it would pair well with roast pork. Read on for the recipe!

Canning Basics: What’s the Deal with Pectin?
Canning feels like equal parts science and magic. Sure, we understand the basic facts of cooking the fruit and sealing it inside jars.

Recipe: Quince Chutney
I have been hoarding a platter of yellow quinces on my desk for the past few weeks, not because these knobbly fruits are especially beautiful to look at but rather as a source of deep olfactory pleasure. Tantalized by their fruity-floral aroma of pineapple, pear, and roses, I was almost convinced that cooking the quinces would be a shame … until I got them into a pot and onto a spoon.

These are just a few of the spices in my cupboard — all well-loved and frequently used.

A, A & A: What’s the Difference Between the New Maple Syrup Grades?
As a kid, pancakes weren’t pancakes without the good stuff. And by the good stuff, I mean real maple syrup — not that artificially flavored, corn syrup-laden imposter. We’d pick up a big jug in the spring and it would last us through the year, for special weekend breakfasts and early morning oatmeal. Now, as an adult, my pantry isn’t fully stocked unless there’s a bottle of maple syrup in it. But lately I’ve discovered that just one bottle won’t cut it.
