The heat of the jalapeno and bite of the red onion play nicely off the subtle sweetness of the peach in this summery salsa.

This is a good choice for an all-purpose curry paste recipe to add zip to Asian dishes. The delightfully complex flavor is superior to jarred curry paste.

I first encountered this sauce at a remote resort in the Copper Canyon. It's simple, but deceptively flavorful. Use it as a rustic salsa or as a sauce spooned over grilled chicken.

Dashi is about the easiest broth you can imagine, with a delicate yet complex flavor. All it takes is three ingredients and 10 minutes to make.

This is a great gravy to use when you're grilling a bird and don't have a pan to collect the juices. A quick turkey stock made from the neck and giblets (removed before the turkey roasts) is enhanced by a nutty roux and brightened by a splash of apple cider. As Nickie says, "it's the perfect autumnal gravy."

Grandma Friese was famous in our family for writing out recipes that began with things like “Take a bottle of cream…” without any indication, for those of us who grew up in the post-milkman era, what the size of a “bottle” might be. And that’s the way this recipe was originally handed down to me. She used to make these cranberries way ahead of time and let them ferment; they have quite a kick.
