Best on the Shoreline!
It's time to nominate your favorites for the 2021 Best on the Shoreline Awards!
Many of us are in summer mode, grilling outside in yards, on patios, and in porches. My go-to favorites for grill season, even with all the fancy recipes in all the food magazines, are burgers and, for dessert, grilled stone fruit.
I am wary of ground meat that comes to supermarkets or warehouse stores in bulk, because I like my burgers very rare. When I stopped last weekend at ShopRite, I asked a butcher to grind up a chuck roast and he said they are not doing that these days. I sighed and said my burgers will have to wait, I guess. He then said they grind hamburgers every day. I found that reassuring, so I bought three pounds, came home, and made them into burgers to freeze. I like them so rare that I grill them frozen.
