I also try to cooking from what I can get in season at the ever present fruit and vegetable stands.

Beef Ribs with Aquavit : page 176

This turned out to be rather typical fatty short ribs on a bed of chopped vegetables. Substituted Vodka and added extra caraway for the Aquavit. These were OK, but did not develop deep carmalized flavors. I prefer the America’s test kitchen recipe.
