Jams and jellies aren't just for your morning toast. "When you're working with roast pork or short ribs or other savory things, that little balance of sweetness is what makes a dope sandwich," says Tyler Kord of No. 7 Sub. Try spreading a thin layer of fruit preserves onto your next meaty sandwich – like orange marmalade on roast beef. Use just enough to give it a tiny hit of sugar – and taste how something ordinary is transformed.
