A note about serious food allergies

“Apple bacon shallot jam” sounds like something the Dead came up with in '74. (During the Wall of Sound tours… sorry, hippie tangent there.) But it's not a 20-minute noodle session; it's a terrific melding of some of the best culinary forces. Apple butter and shallot come together to form a rich, buttery sweetness and a few onion notes. And the bacon… well, it brings home the bacon. Slather this on a succulent pork chop and what a long, delicious trip this has been. Tip: Line 'em up! The best way to remove the ends of green beans is to line them up evenly, then remove them with one cut.
