Winter fruit. Not in the sticky-coconut-sunscreen-and-heat-exhaustion-sunshine kind of way, but in the grilled-sea-bass-with-lemon-and-parsley-I-just-saw-god kind of way (I don’t actually like fish but you get the point). Citrus: it’s tops. Somewhere around November you start see lemons & limes along with tangerines, if you’re lucky your market will get Yuzu or Citron as well as weird things like finger limes. Just after Christmas you'll start to get some blood oranges with little specks of red inside, and by January comes crimson thin-skinned oranges. So this winter I’ve become a crazy person. I’m an adult that still believes in show-and-tell: showing up at friends’ homes with a bottle of wine and armfuls of weird citrus. Twice I knocked on doors to inquire strangers if they’re planning on using the bounty currently laying waste on the lawn of their Victorian, all the while wondering how many times the original schmuck that planted it rolls over in their grave each time a lemon hits the dirt. Fueled by my crave to share and a strong belief that the citrus lady at my farmers market will disappear if I don’t keep buying, I brought a ton of citrus into the office for show-and-tell and preserving. The main goal was to preserve some Meyer lemons with the possibility of a few ancillary projects. Meyer’s are the ones that have a thinner rubbery skin, taste less acidic, and have a slight furniture polish smell about them. One of the ancillary projects was making limoncello. I won’t bury the lede: it came out reeeal bad. Bitter, over-extracted, and a lot closer to actual furniture polish in your mouth than smelling “kinda like it,” it was undrinkable. It made for great pictures so you’re going to see a lot of those, at least it doesn’t hurt to look like furniture polish. Anyways, the lemons. Preserved Meyer lemons are a wonder: they look beautiful in a pantry and they add a certain je ne sais quoi (I’m told that’s French) to any recipe that needs a little acid, think dishes with parsley, carrots, or root vegetables — they add a ton of zip. More importantly? They’re a piece-of-cake to make and are a great first-time project if you want to dive into preserving. Go to the farmer’s market this weekend and pick up a box of citrus so you can take a crack at it yourself, ingredients and directions are below!

Preserved Meyer Lemons

Makes: enough to fill up a quart mason jar.
Ingredients
The beauty of a recipe like preserved lemons is that it’s not exact and is very scale-able, these are some roundabout numbers on how much you’ll need but you’re gonna have a better time if you eyeball it.
  • 5-6 Meyer Lemons
  • 1/3 cup Salt (Stick to kosher when you’re pickling/preserving)
  • Whole Cloves
  • Coriander Seeds
  • Cinnamon Sticks
  • Bay Leaves
Directions
Get a sharp knife, a large mason jar, all your ingredients (sans lemon-juice), two medium-sized bowls, and a cutting board. Use as many or as few of the spices as you like; try a few different batches: spicy with urfa biber and cayenne, floral with lavender, or bitter with fenugreek. Mix spices into a bowl that’s easy to get to, you’ll be scattering them in throughout the process; put your salt in a bowl that you can easily grab a handful out of.
  1. Add a layer of salt on the bottom of your jar.
  2. Take a lemon and cut from the stem end (where the branch was) to the tip pausing at about an inch—do this twice to make quarters. Take a look at some of our pictures, you’re trying to get them to look like Demodogs (if you don’t know what that is, may I introduce you to Netflix?).
  3. Hold the lemon over the bowl and open it like petals of a flower in your hand, fill it with a handful of salt. Close it up and nestle it in the jar.
  4. Make a layer of lemons and scatter in some spices, repeat this process until you reach the top.
  5. Put a weight on top of the lemons, a plate or a slightly smaller mason jar filled with water will work fine. Leave overnight.
  6. The next day take the weight off, if your brine is below the top layer of lemons add lemon juice until they’re covered.
  7. Leave for 30 days at room temperature, checking from time-to-time that the lemons are pushed under the brine.
After the 30 days, your lemons are ready to use—they’ll hold at room temp for a few months and up to a year sealed in the fridge. To use: scrape excess salt off, chop and toss into dishes that need a little acid or call for lemon.

What is the perfect martini? Does perfect mean classic? Does it mean shaken? Or could it mean stirred? Solving the mystery of this basic, yet refined cocktail proved to be a larger feat than we initially anticipated. As many know, much controversy exists in regards to one of the most classic cocktails of all time. Dolin Dry Vermouth, Martini Glass, Bitters Bottle, Jigger, Corbin Gin You may be disappointed to know we never settled on a recipe. We did, however, conclude that the perfect martini is imperfect. We all take ours a little different around here: Grady swirls his glass with vermouth instead of dumping it into the mix. Meghan insists on freezing her coupes. Josh makes his with a lemon ribbon. Steph swears by blue-cheese stuffed olives and Rebecca is all for the vodka over gin. Martini Illustration Dolin Dry Vermouth, Martini Glass, Bitters Bottle, Jigger, Corbin Gin, in a shaker First, decide on your spirit - preferably a premium spirit, one that stands superbly on its own. We used Corbin Cash's sweet potato gin, as we are big fans of a) old style gins b) sustainable practices and c) local farmers + purveyors. A little about Corbin Cash: Fifth generation farmers since 1917, Corbin Cash has a complete line of truly farm-to-bottle spirits - rye, vodka, whiskey and more. They use their sweet potatoes to create each bottle and are a 100% vertically integrated operation. Absolutely everything is done, and sustainably so, on their property; even the spring water used in production is recycled back to the farm for irrigation and the spent mash is used as fertilizer or cattle feed. Next: Glassware.  Brace yourself for a pro-tip: chill your glassware. All of it! From there, add bitters to your chilled mixing glass. Next up, the gin. Pour 2.5 oz into your mixing glass, followed by 3/4 oz vermouth. Finally, add ice and stir your mixture for ~ 20 seconds. Simple, right? Garnish as you wish, be it a lemon twist or stuffed olives. Dolin Dry Vermouth, Martini Glass, Bitters Bottle, Jigger, Corbin GinPeeling a lemon One thing is for sure: there are a few pro-tips you can practice in attempt to achieve martini perfection. Below are a list of our in-house cocktail geek's recommended tips.

Josh's Pro Tips

  • I always add ingredients from least-expensive-by-volume to most-expensive-by-volume; that way when I inevitably screw up I can minimize the cost.
  • Do yourself a favor and buy a bar mat—they make for quick cleanup and they're cheap online. They also make great drying mats for dishes and can be rolled up for storage.
  • Stir for ~ 20 seconds. Got an instant read thermometer? Take a look and stop somewhere between 21º F and 27º F (-6ºC and -3ºC).
  • If you're dropping Olives into your martini, toss them (and their brine) into the fridge a couple hours before you start making drinks. Mixed drinks are a tug-of-war between enthalpy and entropy that brings a drink to -6º  below the freezing point of water,  and it's an abomination to the work you've done to toss in 20 or 30 grams of 68º F stuff — that changes the way you taste the drink (the taste of the vermouth in the drink, most dramatically) and the life of the cocktail.
  • On that note - store your gin in the freezer and the Vermouth in the fridge. It's going to give you far more control over dilution (ice melting while it cools) as well as the final temperature of the drink.
  • Freeze everything—serving glasses, mixing glasses, all the booze.
  • Store a few pint glasses (beer glasses) in the freezer, no-one has the cash to throw down for multiple fancy mixing glasses and you're usually making a few drinks in an evening. Use the mixing glass to impress your guests, and use the pint glass for your own drink while they're chatting in the other room. Plus it's always good to have a few pint glasses chilled for beer or seltzer water, it's a nice touch.

Cue: Coppersea. If you're unfamiliar with how whisky was made in early America, you're not alone. Long ago, American distillers reconditioned and reused barrels (several times). They oftentimes used barrels that previously held wine, beer or even fish. In the spirit of tradition, Coppersea uses a combination of second-use bourbon, rye, brandy and wine barrels to achieve a robust, balanced flavor. b83b5547 While we're all for whisky with a good 'ole splash of H20, Coppersea sent some suggested recipes, the likes of which we could not refuse. The first recipe: Mott & Mulberry. Picture this. It's a brisk November evening and you're rocking back and forth in an old wooden chair on a quiet porch, somewhere in the woods. There's an apple grove to your left and fragrant sugar maples on your right. Keeping you warm is a red flannel blanket, sprawled across your lap and this drink in your hand. That's kind of what this tastes like. And we were kind of in love with it. First, you'll need the following ingredients:

1 oz. Coppersea Corn Whisky

1 oz. Luxardo Amaro Abano

¾ oz. Apple Cider

¼ oz. Pure Maple Syrup

¼ oz. Fresh Lemon Juice

Thin Apple Slice(s) for garnish

In a shaker, combine everything except the apple slices. Fill the shaker with ice cubes, cover and shake well. Using a fine mesh cocktail strainer, strain the cocktail into a chilled coupe. Garnish with apple. And voila: you've got yourself a one way ticket to happiness (also known as a Mott & Mulberry).

Born and raised in Naples, Italy; let me introduce you to my mother-in-law, Pina.  I consider Pina to be the best cook in all her family - and we’re talking a very large family here.  When the rest of the Hive heard that she would be visiting for a whole month, they eagerly asked if she would mind making some authentic Italian cuisine to take place on a “Taco Tuesday” - a weekly group lunch we all have grown to love. What a delight it was for us to share together in her homemade Neapolitan style lasagna which has been passed down in her family for many generations. Rest assured there were more than a few “Mmmm’s” and “this is SO good!”

Pina started prepping her homemade Bolognese sauce the night before Italian Tuesday; which was sheer torture when the delicious aroma filled our home and I had to wait until the next day to finally consume her extraordinary lasagna dish.

In hopes of opening a restaurant one day, the Ruggiero’s are unwilling to part with their family secret Neapolitan-style Lasagna recipe.  They did, however, give us their Italian salad dressing recipe which we hope you will try out at your next dinner party!

How To:

  • Two parts extra virgin California or Italian grown olive oil
  • one part Modena balsamic vinegar
  • salt
  • two squeezes fresh lemon juice

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and vigorously stir together. Pour on top of lettuce greens, and your choice of toppings such as: tomatoes, red onions, feta cheese and kalamata olives. Try it at home with your next pasta dinner!
