Cooking the Channel: Bal’s Lentil Cookies

Lentils are high in protein and fiber and are one of the best vegetable sources of iron out there. They’re popular in India, the Mediterranean, Pakistan and the Middle East, and are easily found in any neighborhood grocery store in the United States. Lentils are also inexpensive, so a great pantry item for families to [...]

Fig Jam with Fennel Pollen

Abundance is the mother of preservation. My friend Amy found herself in possession of a very large quantity of figs, more than any rational human could possibly manage to consume, so I happily took a few flats off her hands. Fig jam, after all, is my absolute favorite.

Matt Entertains: Queso Fundido

Two words: melted cheese. That intersection of cheesy, oozy meltability and crunchy toasted corners can throw us over the edge and for good reason. It’s what can make or break a great slice of pizza. It’s what we enjoy most about grilled cheese sandwiches. It’s what makes saganaki and haloumi so fun to eat. And [...]

Canning: Pickles, Relish and Jam

I’ve always been intrigued, if a bit intimidated, by the canning process. My parents stopped canning when I was about waist-high, so while I dreamed of having a root-cellar (yes, I live in an apartment, but, hey, it’s my dream) full of canned goods, I’d never actually canned anything. So when my friend (and canning [...]

Solving: The Okra Situation

Every week, my farmer delivers fresh-picked tomatoes, peaches, herbs and as many squash as I can carry. Then, there’s the okra situation. For the last month, my CSA box has included a big bag okra. “I hope you’re not tired of okra,” my farmer says. I vaguely smile. I’m not tired of okra — I’m stumped by it.
