The Goods: Local Foods We’re Digging This Month
This month, we’re into brown-rice miso, date-and-red-chili chutney, and Lucky Dog Vodka.
South River Brown-Rice Miso
We’ve been using the Massachusetts-based company’s thick soybean paste to add umami to noodles, brothy soups, and vegetable fried rice.
$10, available at Whole Foods
Blake Hill Preserves Date-and-Red-Chili Chutney
The combination of fruity dates and apples with earthy peppers and cumin makes this a great dipper for pita wedges and a delicious sweet-savory sauce for chicken.
$10, available at Provisions, Northhampton
Lucky Dog Vodka
This vodka—crafted in the Rockies for a Nantucket-based company is becoming our go-to for a classic martini with a twist.
$23, available at Upper Falls Liquors, Newton
