A trip upstate a few weekends ago quickly turned into a raspberry picking spree after we saw a sign on the side of the road advertising U-Pick berries. I knew that a batch of jam was my first order of business.
This infusion of strawberries, vinegars and sugar is a great way to preserve the (very last) strawberries of the season, and is one of the most surprisingly delicious recipes I've stumbled on in a long time.
Tangy and sweet this homemade corn relish is a go-to item in my pantry. It has been incorporated into many meals over the last year. My favorite use was to add a couple dollops to sour cream and enjoy it as salad dressing.
