Rich Red Plum Jam

Serious Eats Jennifer Latham Post a comment

This is a beautiful jewel-red jam with a perfect balance of sweet and tart. Putting half of the fruit through a food mill and leaving the other half in quarters makes for a rustic textured jam. An overnight maceration gives you a head-start on the jamming process. It's a great jam to pair with fresh, creamy cow's milk cheeses like ricotta. More

What seems like a simple tart is so much more, thanks to the cleverness of this recipe from Libbie Summers' new cookbook, Sweet and Vicious: Baking with Attitude. It bakes up beautifully, a layer of pistachio cream mingling with juice from the mixed selection of fresh fruit. A fat scoop of vanilla ice cream is all that's needed for a finishing touch. More

In this recipe from her new cookbook, A Change of Appetite, Diana Henry elevates the classic caprese combo of mozzarella, tomato, and basil with the addition of nectarine. The ripe fruit adds a juicy sweetness that I never realized was missing. Dressed with just olive oil and white balsamic, every element shows at its best. So simple, so smart. More

Blueberry Breakfast Bars From 'Whole-Grain Mornings'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

Sweet, snack-like foods are not usually my pick for breakfast. I'm less likely to grab a muffin or slice of coffee cake than I am to slurp down a bowl of oatmeal. Still, slightly sweet baked goods like Megan Gordon's blueberry breakfast bars in her new cookbook, Whole-Grain Mornings, could find a place in my breakfast routine if I need a quick grab-and-go meal.
