From the Test Kitchen

Tonight, we’re pairing knockwurst—a pleasantly garlicky, smoked German-style beef sausage in a snappy pork casing—with tender pinto beans. The beans are stewed on the stove with a touch of molasses for deep sweetness (a traditional New England touch). A vinegar-based slaw of thin-sliced cabbage and grated carrots, tossed with aromatic celery seeds, balances out the rich and sweet flavors of the dish.
