Aioli

Use a pale-golden oil to make this silky, garlic-spiced mayonnaise. Nesting the mixing bowl on a tea towel fitted inside a stock pot creates an easy, even stabilization, which frees both your hands for simultaneous whisking and oil-pouring. See the recipe for Aioli »Andr¿ Baranowski

Beet Ketchup

Beet Ketchup

Ketchup made with roasted beets has a surprising, slightly earthy flavor—we love it in place of tomato ketchup on turkey burgers. It's easiest to cook it over the course of two days: On day one, cook, cool, peel, and chop the beets; on day two, cook them into ketchup. A splatter screen will help keep splashes contained while cooking the purée.Khushbu Shah
