The leaves are falling, the temperatures are dropping, and our taste buds are changing! I love all 4 seasons but Fall has so much to offer….especially when it comes to food! With every season the supermarket isles are changing and we get the chance to expose ourselves and those around us to different flavors.
A fall staple…I recently took my elementary school aged children apple picking…they ran through the orchards trying all the different varieties of apples. At home we made apple crisp, baked apples, and added them raw to our lunches. My favorite ingredient to include when baking apples? Pecans….
It’s everywhere! I was recently at Trader Joes and an entire section was dedicated to pumpkin! My son’s favorite cereal bars had a pumpkin flavor, ice cream has been infused with pumpkin, even granola and pancake mix had a pumpkin flavor. And don’t forget about the pumpkin seeds and pie! Pumpkin is even full of Vitamins A, C, and E-Bring on the antioxidants!
So many different varieties to try! Do u like spaghetti? Or maybe the butternut variety? Winter or acorn? Do you prefer your squash pureed in a soup or roasted with brown sugar and toasted nuts? And interestingly enough, pumpkin is also a type of squash!
