“We grow many different varieties of strawberry at the farm, and I love making jam with them. I’ve adapted my friend Christine Ferber’s recipe, from her book Mes Confitures— it’s delicious!” —Martha STRAWBERRY JAM In a glass bowl, stir together 3 pounds hulled ripe red strawberries, 5 cups granulated sugar, and the juice of 1 large lemon. Refrigerate overnight. Transfer to a large, heavy pot and bring to a simmer, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Return to bowl, cover, and refrigerate overnight. Strain syrup into a large, heavy stockpot; reserve berries. Bring syrup to a boil, then cook until a thermometer registers 221°. Add berries; boil 5 minutes more, skimming foam as needed. Pour into hot sterilized jelly jars. Let cool completely, cover, and refrigerate up to 2 weeks, or freeze up…

just add friends

RIGHT ABOUT NOW I feel like I owe everyone I know a phone call—and I’m not alone. The truth is we’re all busy working, raising families, and factoring in all facets of life in an overscheduled world. But once June rolls around, it seems like the universe hatches a plan to help us reconnect with our friends and family. The warm weather unbuttons all of the tightness of the colder days, and brings with it the ease of wearing sandals every day, and the sweet taste of fresh strawberries. The days also get longer, giving us more hours to play. And homes seem to double in size when we can start counting the backyard as a fun, hassle-free space to get together. This annual issue, devoted to summer food and…

garden-fresh pastas

Teach and Inspire SIMPLE. FRESH. EASY. COLORFUL. HEALTHY. These five words have become very important to me in the kitchen. The busier I am, the more creative I become—especially when it comes to getting a meal on the table. Whether for lunch or dinner, a tasty and inventive pasta fits these five criteria perfectly. Each of the three recipes here uses a different style of pasta. You can try what I have suggested or substitute your favorites, or whatever you have on hand. (For example, my daughter, Alexis, will most likely cook with wholewheat, farro, or spelt pasta.) Personally, I love to experiment with different shapes, and am often pleasantly surprised by a new texture or size. Cheese is an important ingredient in these dishes too, and in each one I have…

Fresh Ideas to Elevate the Everyday INSTANT UPGRADE Give It a Swirl Adding style and polish to a bunch of mismatched vases can be as simple as, well, adding polish. Nail lacquer, which floats on water, is an ingenious medium for marbleizing ceramics. And the design possibilities are endless: We chose pastels, but you literally have hundreds of options at your fingertips. 1 Fill a plastic bowl with water, then carefully pour in a quarter-bottle of nail polish (too fast and it will sink; too slow and it will get brittle before you dip). Add additional shades, and swirl with a toothpick. 2 Dip in the part of the vase you want to marbleize, and twist it to transfer the pattern. Set the vase on paper towels to dry. Once the polish is totally dry,…
