Recipes to Celebrate FALL!

September 7, 2022 by Emily Moore

What is it called when an apple tree doesn’t think it’s autumn? Disbe-leaf

When you make a habit of eating locally and seasonally, the changes in seasons are marked by certain crops. Certain foods become synonymous with the seasons themselves. For example, here in Colorado, when Palisade peaches have come and gone, we know that summertime is truly coming to an end and autumn is around the corner. Having grown up in New England, for me the arrival of fall means one thing:

If you live in a region with seasonal farmers' markets, you may still have a few weeks left to snap up some local produce before the markets wind down. Depending on where you live, you might even find some end-of-season, local-to-you cucumbers, melons, and tomatoes. And if you’re lucky, you’ll catch a glimpse of what’s coming into season.

The change of seasons is SUCH an exciting time in the kitchen! We usher in a fresh cast of culinary characters and fall in love all over again with the stars of autumn. The spicy peppers, the creamy potatoes, the crisp apples – they’ve spent months preparing, and its finally time for their big, breakout roles! We are SO ready to see them shine!
