Expert Tips

Southern cooks often enhance vegetables with bacon or other types of pork. Old-fashioned recipes called for cooking the vegetables until they were practically mush. Here, the beans cook until just tender, retaining their color, character and vitamins.

Shallots have been referred to as the aristocrats of the onion family. The bulbs have several distinct cloves, similar to garlic bulbs. Their flavor, somewhere between that of onion and garlic, is often described as sophisticated. Shallots are used successfully in sauces because their flavor is more delicate and their texture more tender than either onion or garlic.
