Native corn

Just got an email from the folks at Cucurbit Farm in Acton. They picked their first corn of the season this morning.

I made 4 stollen yesterday. Three of them are in the freezer. One of them is sitting on the kitchen counter right now, but I don't expect it it last through tomorrow.

Need Turkey Parts ASAP

Market Basket almost always has turkey parts—legs, wings, thighs and sometimes necks—any time of the year. Roche Brothers has them sometimes.

Preserved Lemons

I have a large jar of about 10 lemons that I have preserving in salt and lemon juice for almost a month. They'll be ready to go in a few days. Other than Morrocan chicken with green olives and preserved lemon, what are some other things I can make?

ISO capers packed in salt

Does anyone know where I can get the large capers packed in salt in the Concord/Acton/Maynard area?

Since Market Basket is not an option, where can I buy Bomba Rice or Arroz La Marjal?

Sur La Table sells Bomba rice.

Native Corn

I just stopped at my local farm stand to get some corn for dinner. They were charging 50¢ an ear for unripped and 75¢ an ear for ripped. Problem solved.

Homemade gnocchi…egg or no egg?

I want to make gnocchi at home. Some recipes I've read call for eggs and some are egg free. Is one way better than the other or are they just different?

Pandoro from Carol Field's "The Italian Baker." They just need some powdered sugar on top to finish them off.

Pork fat

I need to find a local source for pork fat/fatback for sausage making. Any suggestions? I will travel…

Pomegranate Molasses

Does pomegranate molasses go bad?

I was cleaning out my cupboards the other day and waaaaaay in the back I found an unopened bottle that must be well over 5 years old. I looked at the ingredient list to see if there were preservatives in it and the only ingredient listed was pomegranate juice. Should I keep it or toss it?

Lump Charcoal West of Boston

I saw it at BJs the other day. I don't recall the brand.

Also, try your local hardware store.

Pita Bread

Pretty much all the "pita" bread that's available in the grocery stores in the area is terrible. I think it's primarily made for people without any teeth. You don't really have to chew it. Plus, it doesn't have much taste either.

I'm looking for some real pita-type bread that you actually have to chew and tastes good. Metrowest preferred, but I will travel. Any suggestions?

Looking for butcher shop or salumeria with the best hot italian sausage

I second De Pasquale's. Their hot sausage is actually hot. Most of the "hot" sausage you get in the supermarket is for babies.

What cookbooks have you bought lately? Summer edition, part 1 [OLD]

The "Rosie's" cookbook is one of my favorites when I need to make a cake. I've been baking from it since it first came out.

Try the Bittersweet Orange Cake with Lemon Glaze and the Pumpkin Cheesecake. Highly recommended…
