Eating Well Magazine, November 2006 edition. Look for dry-to-medium sherry sold with other fortified wines in your wine or liquor store. This is the only way the residents here at the home will even try the vegetable -- I liked it very much. However, after tasting it I thought it needed something -- to begin with added nutmeg and then a crushed red pepper flakes, for that extra zing.
