They say the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year, and when it comes to holiday food in the South, that’s what we call an understatement. When this most festive of seasons rolls around, our signature Southern hospitality kicks into overdrive. From tins of cookies sent off to loved ones and feast tables decked out to the nines, we just can’t help ourselves. Homemade treats become seasonal greeting cards from home cooks across the region. In this issue, we’ve got all the Thanksgiving and Christmas essentials, like our foolproof Pecan Pie (page 78), Classic Ambrosia Salad (page 27), and a glazed whole-roasted turkey that will prove you don’t need to choose between juicy turkey breasts and perfectly cooked thighs (if you follow our tips on page 47, that is). And…

North Carolina-native Lindsay Autry has garnered national acclaim through her work at prominent restaurants across the South and Mexico as well as her appearance on the ninth season of the Bravo series Top Chef.

RUTABAGAS are a cruciferous vegetable—a cousin of cabbage, turnips, and broccoli. While they look similar in appearance to turnips and boast a similarly spicy flavor profile, they are sweeter and denser. The harvest season typically runs from September through June, but their peak season for the best flavor is when winter is in full force. Rutabagas’ low price also makes them an excellent budget-friendly vegetable to add to your weekly grocery list. The roots are often waxed for long-term storage, so be sure to scrub off the wax or peel them before using. Mashed Rutabagas with Sun-Dried Tomato-Bacon Jam MAKES 4 TO 6 SERVINGS Sun-dried tomatoes give the jam a deep tomato flavor, perfect for those winter nights when the warm days of summer seem far away. 3 pounds rutabagas, peeled and cut into…
