Fall Pumpkin & Apple Recipes

23 Oct, 2015

Family Apple Picking

Fall is a wonderful season for cooking. Many delicious fruits and vegetables are in season, and with the weather changing, the urge to consume warm, homemade comfort food is overwhelmingly powerful. While there are so many tantalizing fall culinary creations out there, today we are honing in on two fall classics: apples and pumpkins.

Apple dishes

You simply cannot have fall without apples. While many prefer the time-honored tradition of picking their own apples (complete with hayrides and corn mazes), the popular fruit is easily available at your local supermarket or farm stand.

So what can you make with apples? There’s no doubt that apple fritters, breads, crumbles and muffins are all delicious, but the must-have fall apple recipe that every chef, from novice to seasoned veteran, should have in their repertoire is for pie. We are talking good old American apple pie!

There are so many things you can make with pumpkin. No doubt you’ve seen the recent pumpkin flavoring obsession as you’ve shopped the aisles at your preferred food store. Pumpkin-flavored waffles, candies, coffee, beer, granola bars, baked goods – need we go on?
