A Carolina Thanksgiving
This Thanksgiving menu includes updated classics like mashed sweet potatoes with cumin and bourbon-spiked pumpkin pie.
Robert Stehling makes huge batches of jelly to give as gifts. He serves it here with goat cheese and Sesame-Cornmeal Crackers, a savory version of the traditional sweet benne (sesame) wafers that are popular throughout the South. This intensely spicy condiment is also great as a barbecue sauce for grilled pork and chicken.
