Links: Popcorn, butternut squash, red cabbage, and other winter veggies

A use for all of the popcorn that I've been receiving lately: how to make kettle corn at home.

Some ideas for the butternut squash backlog:

Sweet and sour red cabbage. I have one and a half heads of red cabbage in the fridge.

While it's no longer fennel season, I'd like to remember this recipe for next year's fennel: fennel and mushroom puree with grainy mustard.

We've been getting lots of potatoes this winter, which has been great. A make-ahead potato gratin might be a good way to use some of them.

Beet and carrot fritters. I'm not sure about these, but am contemplating them. It seems that the beet would overwhelm the carrot.

Here's a video on how to brown butter.

Finally, for those of you local to Boston (or planning to visit Boston someday): a cool interactive map of 20 coffee shops in Boston from Eater. These long, cold, snow pile filled days call for lots of coffee. Of course, there's no place to park in Boston these days and the T is not doing well, which might make it difficult to get to these places.

Spring is coming, right?
