Brined Pork Chops with Maple-Vanilla Glaze
It might seem counter-intuitive, but brining any cut of meat can make it significantly juicer and more tender.

How? The brine increases the amount of moisture in the meat, allowing more of it to remain in the pork as it cooks. While some cuts can benefit from long brining times (up to 24 hours or more), even an hour of brining can produce a markedly moister, more flavorful pork chop.

Various seasonings can be added to the brining mixture to enhance the taste, but use restraint and allow the natural flavor of the pork to shine through. Vanilla might seem to be an odd ingredient to pair with pork, but when used correctly, it adds a subtle, but delicious note to the naturally sweet, rich flavor of the meat.

Oaxaca Chocolate Torta
Black Garlic Recipe Contest Grand Prize Winner
Congratulations to Diane Nemitz of Ludington, Michigan for her winning recipe entry "Oaxaca Chocolate Torta"!

Diane's recipe was selected for its originality and highly imaginative use of ingredients, including the featured ingredient, Black Garlic. Her clearly written preparation instructions were also a big plus! While Black Garlic might not be something you would typically think of using in a dessert, we found that its mellow sweetness and mild tang added the perfect touch to this deep, dark chocolate torta. Try it yourself and see what you think!

Parsnip Puree with Vanilla
Parsnips have a sweet, earthy flavor that actually gets better if they've been left in the ground until the first frost. This simple recipe lets their natural goodness shine through. A little good quality vanilla acts as a flavor "potentiator", subtly boosting the flavor of the parsnips while remaining inconspicuously in the background.

Everyone loves this dish, but no one is ever able to figure out the "secret ingredient"!
