Watermelon-rind chutney is actually an old-fashioned sweet pickle. It's made modern with ginger and Thai chiles, which enliven the crisp rind's naturally cool qualities. It pairs beautifully with succulent Asian-style spareribs.
In classical French cooking, brown stock is made with veal bones for a delicate-bodied soup; here, beef is added for a deeper flavor. To make a traditional version, simply replace the beef with more veal bones. This recipe is from the "Martha Stewart's Cooking School" cookbook.
