Bright, fruity, with mellow tartness and sweetness, this strawberry balsamic sauce is ready for a multitude of uses.
Two things I always keep around are many types of pickles and feta cheese. Both of these ingredients perk up leftovers, salads, and the occasional lackluster recipe, but I had never thought to take these two kitchen stalwarts and combine them. Thank goodness Tenaya Darlington thought of it for me and told me how in her new cheese-centric cookbook, Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese.
I have a terrible habit of stockpiling open jars of jams and jellies in the fridge. Inevitably, the second half of the jar will languish in the back of the fridge after I've grown tired of that particular strawberry, peach, or blackberry preserve. So recipes like Melissa Hamilton and Christopher Hirsheimer's little toasts with preserved strawberries and jamón serrano in Canal House Cooks Every Day are a godsend (to me and my sad, half-empty jars). Pairing sweet, tender strawberries with salty, fatty ham is an easy way to battle jam palate fatigue as it turns a breakfast staple into a fast hors d'oeuvre.

I was rarely given Fruit Roll-Ups as a kid. Instead, my siblings and I were stuck with the healthier, thicker fruit leathers from the natural foods aisle. We often yearned for the pliable texture, bright color, and saccharine flavor of the decidedly fruit-less roll-ups in our friends lunch boxes. Now that I make my own food choices, I honestly prefer the more wholesome choice. Luckily, Casey Barber's recipe for Strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups in Classic Snacks Made from Scratch bridges the divide.
