  • Once again, we want to give a big thanks to all of our volunteer recipe testers for your thoughtful comments and for helping us continue to strengthen our recipe recommendations. You can read each tester's comments by clicking through to the Editors' Picks recipes — the comments are under "Amanda and Merrill's Notes" at the top.

    Congratulations to another great batch of Editors' Picks!

  • Addendum
  • We received a revised -- and glowing -- appraisal of ScoopAdventurer's Basil Ice Cream, so we're belatedly adding it to the roster of Editors' Picks. Congrats!

    Clearly, plums inspire greatness! Beautiful recipies. Congrats everyone!

    Thanks so much frozenfoodie for testing my plum sauce recipe. I love it that you swapped in special ingredients from your pantry, that is what I often do, ( the culinary intuition is usually spot on.) Fruit flavored balsamic vinegars are magical, and the cinnamon-pear variety that you used sounds like a perfect match for the plums. It is such an honor to receive an EP.

    That is the best review I have ever gotten on anything! Thanks AJ! I'm gonna go eat some jam :-)

    Thanks Apple Annie for such a lovely review. I appreciate your recommending mascarpone, ricotta, crème fraîche, and ice cream pairings. Their sweetness would accent the tart freshness of this soup very well. I'm so glad the infused honey worked out well. And congrats to all! It is always an honor to receive an EP.
