And you’re no less active at home, in towns and cities all across the country. Food and cooking are more than just feeding your family; they’re part of how you care for and interact with your local community, too. Starting this fall and continuing throughout the coming year, we’re building a campaign called #weARcommunity to collect your stories about how you care for and support your community through food. Maybe you and your family volunteer at a food bank or organize a bake sale to raise money for a cause. Perhaps you deliver food to the elderly, send care packages to deployed soldiers, or simply bring a casserole to the new mom down the street. Nothing is too big or small, and there are probably ways you’re volunteering around food that…

the kitchen sink

OKTOBERFEST ACTUALLY STARTS IN SEPTEMBER? WE’LL DRINK TO THAT! What began in 1810 as a Bavarian prince’s wedding celebration has become a worldwide excuse to wear lederhosen and drink German-style beer. In fact, “Oktoberfest” refers not only to the 16- to 18-day festival (Sept. 17-Oct. 3 this year) but also to beers brewed specially for it. According to the German Purity Law (a real thing, we swear!), true Oktoberfest beers come from only six Munich breweries that follow certain criteria. Oktoberfest-ish beers brewed elsewhere typically aim for similar toasty, full-bodied flavors. Both are widely available this time of year, so there’s no need to hit the beer garden. Just fill your sink with ice and a few of these. Prost! BEERS SHOWN: Ayinger Oktober Fest-Märzen, Weihenstephaner Oktoberfestbier, Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest, Hacker-Pschorr Original…

kitchen hacks: sweet!

1. SWEET POTATO CARAMEL SAUCE Peel 3 pounds sweet potatoes, chop into 2-inch chunks, and roast with ½ cup water, covered, in a 450°F oven for 1 hour. Stir in 2 cups water, scraping up brown bits. Roast, covered, 20 minutes more, then lightly mash. Drain 1 hour in a cheesecloth-lined finemesh strainer set over a small saucepan. Reserve mash. Simmer liquid over high heat until reduced by about twothirds (but not burnt!), about 9 minutes. Stir in 2 tablespoons butter, 1 tablespoon cream, and 1 tablespoon maple syrup; chill thoroughly (it tastes sweeter cold). You’ll have about ½ cup to drizzle over ice cream, plus 3 cups of reserved mash for… 2.

your kitchen, waste-free

Make it a game: How little food can you discard in one week? It’s a game worth playing, because the average family of four spends more than $120 every month on food that never gets eaten. That’s like buying five bags of groceries and delivering two of them to a dumpster. Here’s how you can save a whole lot more. THE EXPIRATION-DATE MYTH. “Best by” and “sell by” dates are just manufacturer suggestions for when food is at its peak—not when it goes bad. “Sell by” is actually earlier—sometimes by up to a couple of weeks. If you didn’t know that, you have lots of company: Surveys have shown that up to 90 percent of Americans misinterpret the dates and throw food away prematurely. Many foods will stay good for days or…

a fish in every pot

Around the world, lots of people can’t afford to eat meat and don’t otherwise get enough iron in their diets. As many vegetarians know, cooking in a cast-iron pot can help because food absorbs some of the pot’s iron while it cooks. But a Canadian company with a global health mission has a solution that works with any pot: a piece of iron shaped like a fish. The company estimates that one Lucky Iron Fish—added with a little lemon juice to the cooking water for things like soup, rice, pasta, or veggies—can provide most of a family’s iron needs for up to five years. Among Cambodian families who used it daily for nine months, cases of diet-related anemia dropped by 50 percent. SWEET POTATO PHOTO: BLAINE MOATS. SAUCE, SMOOTHIES, PB&J: KIM…
