Five Times correspondents from around the world describe their favorite picnic spots in (or just outside) the cities they have covered. THERE ARE PRETTIER PLACES IN FRANCE. THERE ARE CERTAINLY more cheerful spots to picnic. But for Americans visiting Europe, there is perhaps no more moving site than the military cemeteries and beaches on the Normandy coast, where the 1st U.S. Army Division launched the Battle of Normandy on June 6, 1944.

Sometimes the newest trends in cooking aren't necessarily the best. The court bouillon is a French technique so old it has nearly been forgotten, but you can't beat it for adding flavor. A court bouillon is a quickly made stock. If you've had a poached salmon, you're probably familiar with the idea. Taste one fish cooked in water and another poached in a wine-and-herb-enhanced liquid and you'll realize the difference immediately.

The Food and Drug Administration said manufacturers of unpasteurized apple juice or apple cider now must warn consumers that such beverages could contain illness-causing microbes. All other unprocessed packaged fruit and vegetable juices must carry a warning by Nov. 5, the FDA said. To make it easier for companies to comply with the mandate, the FDA is allowing manufacturers to display warning signs where juices are sold, though they must include the warning on the package within one year.

Apple chipotle chutney Total time: 1 hour Servings: Makes about 1 quart Note: Adapted from Susan Dumeyer and David Sundeen of Windrose Farm. They write, "It is best to use cider apples for this as they have a nice deep flavor and usually have higher sugars that help break the flesh down. I normally keep the skin on to help add pectin for texture. We make our own chipotles at the farm, so this is based on a dried chipotle we sell, not one packed in adobo sauce.

At this very moment my neighbor, Cassy, is awaiting delivery of a 100-year-old cider press she bought on eBay. She, like many of us, has apple fever. I made an apple galette at least twice this week. And I'm dreaming of the apple hand pies I used to buy in frosty weather from the famous bakery Poîlane on Rue du Cherche-Midi in Paris. But even if you don't bake, you can get in on the apple frenzy at restaurants and bakeries. Now that we've got pumpkin desserts out of the way, inspired bakers are turning their attention to apples.
