Fall arrives and nature’s growth comes to an end. Squash, turnips, beets, etc. lend themselves to soups and salads flavoured with the last of our summer’s herbs. Surplus ripe tomatoes are turned into canned or frozen salsas and sauce.
This month, the first real frost brings an unconscious desire for heartier meals. A cook’s thoughts turn to stews with a fresh loaf of warm bread. Harvested root vegetables simmer in a rich, meat-filled broth to provide comfort and to ease the chill of a cool fall night.
Enjoy the local harvest; we are truly blessed to live in an area full of the riches that our farmers and fields have to offer. Spend some time in the kitchen this season melding the deep rich flavors of the fall.
