Can you believe it’s already fall? It feels like just yesterday was February, but Winter, Spring, and Summer have already come and gone, and now it’s already fall! Fall is the season of harvest, where farmers reap what they’ve sown from the fields that have been growing since Spring.
While there are always fresh vegetables and fruit available year-round, fall is the season when they’re most fresh and delicious, since they are the most ripe this time of year! Of the vegetables and fruit available this season, there are always the best of the best that you should watch out for the next time you go grocery shopping.
We all know about apples and pumpkin- we have entire flavors and foods dedicated to them that always make a comeback this time of year. But did you know that their cousins pears, quince, and winter squash are also just as ripe and amazing?
Try them out either paired with apples and pumpkins or on their own for a delicious and hearty meal or dessert. If you’re not as big a fan of those, why not try some sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, or cauliflower? Those foods are delicious year-round, but are best in the fall.
