Pim's Marmalade


F&W Executive Food Editor Tina Ujlaki applies her incredible cooking knowledge to explaining what to do with a variety of interesting ingredients.

I never knew I loved marmalade until I tried the ones made by the extraordinary blogger/cooking teacher/globe-trotter/marmalade mistress Pim Techamuanvivit, who you can find at Pim’s marmalades are almost like confections, because they are chock-full of chunky strips of candied peel. (I sometimes pick the peels out, chop them up and add them to scones and muffins.) Every marmalade I’ve tried—and Pim makes different ones every year—has been fantastically delicious and never too sweet. They’re all you need to turn morning toast with butter into a special event.

If you have any left over or are looking for other ways to use the marmalade, here are some great ideas:
White Chocolate Cake with Orange-Marmalade Filling
Prosciutto-Wrapped Shrimp with Orange Marmalade 
Orange-Cranberry Scones with Turbinado Sugar

Wine Wednesday

Rosé for Turkey Day

Here’s the deal with Thanksgiving. You need a wine that goes with turkey (easy enough, turkeys don’t taste like anything). You need a wine that goes with stuffing, green beans, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes with marshmallows melted on top (a concept I find revolting, personally, but what can I say?), creamed onions, mashed potatoes with gravy, brussels sprouts, you name it. And, because who wants to make more than one trip to the store for this crazy holiday, you need wine that goes with pizza, too, because pizza is the single most popular food for the night before Thanksgiving. To put it more briefly, what you need is a wine that goes with everything. And that’s a dry rosé. "It’s not too big, it’s not too small; as Goldilocks would say, if she were old enough to drink, it’s just right." »

There are 140 million active users on Twitter, and come Thursday, many of them will sneak away from bickering relatives to tweet. The social media titan sees a significant uptick in activity on holidays, with festive hashtags and keywords taking over the platform. According to rep Rachael Horwitz, the most impressive day to observe might be New Year’s Eve when “Happy New Year!” tweets sweep through time zones as the clock strikes midnight, but whether you like it or not, “turkey” gets its due in life and online this week. Last year, analysts tracked a 2000 percent increase in use of the word, and "cook" tripled in frequency. MORE »
