From the Test Kitchen

Tonight, we’re celebrating the best of autumn with a gourmet hash. Yukon Gold potato, Brussels sprouts and turnip, sautéed together for satisfying crispiness, get an extra pop from a bit of lemon zest. As a topping for our vegetables and pan-seared salmon, we’re serving up a sweet, tart and piquant vinaigrette—cooking Granny Smith apple and mustard seeds in browned butter, for a comforting layer of rich, toasty flavor.

Prepare the ingredients:

1 Prepare the ingredients:


Wash and dry the fresh produce. Core and small dice the apple. Using a peeler, remove the yellow rind of the lemon, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind to get 2 teaspoons of zest (or use a zester). Quarter and deseed the lemon. Medium dice the potatoes. Peel and medium dice the turnip. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the Brussels sprouts; quarter the Brussels sprouts. Pick the tarragon leaves off the stems; discard the stems and roughly chop the leaves.

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the butter on medium-high until melted. Cook, stirring occasionally and swirling the pan, 2 to 3 minutes, or until deep golden brown and fragrant. Add the apple and mustard seeds; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened and fragrant. Turn off the heat and stir in the juice of all 4 lemon wedges; season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a bowl and set aside in a warm place. Rinse and wipe out the pan.
