From the Test Kitchen

Tonight’s meal is hearty winter cooking at its finest. Verjus blanc, the tart, fresh juice of young wine grapes, is the key to our rich pan sauce’s pleasant tanginess—making it the perfect complement to the sweet sautéed apple and piquant mustard in our veggie hash. A garnish of chopped almonds adds a crunchy finish.
