Although beans are not typically grown in Vermont, we had a great black bean harvest last year and enjoyed them for the better part of the winter. This is a reasonably easy and very tasty way to prepared black beans.
Leftover figs from a party inspired a week of everything fig. This chutney was a great hit, served as an accompaniment for grilled lamb chops or simply with a slice of Manchego cheese. A true savory sweet treat.
