Crab Cakes with Horseradish Cream
A real New England seafood staple, these crab cakes taste that much better with the accompaniment of sour cream and horseradish.
In this classic recipe, the beans are cooked in the same smokers as the briskets, in pans placed underneath the meat to catch the drippings.
With its all-American ingredients, this New England-style chowder is a comfort-food classic. The soup needs only bread, or traditional oyster crackers, as an accompaniment.
Savory Cranberry-Walnut Biscuits
With crunchy nuts, sweet-tart cranberries and sautéed shallots, these make fantastic bread for turkey sandwiches.
Perhaps not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of New England, this Indian pudding is nonetheless warm, spicy, and flavorful.
Our simple soup really highlights the taste of sweet summer corn, but since the vegetable is available virtually all the time, you can make the chowder year-round. You can even use frozen corn, though fresh is best.
Cranberry Apple Raisin Crisp
With ingredients like ground cloves and orange juice, this homey dessert packs more flavor than meets the eye.
If you want to keep this chowder light, omit the cream and add a little bit more stock. For the best flavor, let the finished chowder stand for 1 hour and reheat gently before serving.
