There are so many wonderful flavors of fall not just pumpkin spice, although does get all the attention. There is definitely a time and place for it in the fall flavors line-up, but when I say Fall into Flavor, I mean literally we are falling into fall flavors everywhere we turn.
The flavors of fall are undeniable, so delicious and comforting.The orchards are full of so many different varieties of apples, all ready for us to pick and turn into tasty treats. Not to mention the gourds that we see a plenty everywhere we look, even in our fall decorating! The nights are turning cooler and gourds are perfect for making tasty comforting soups.
Some of my happiest memories in the kitchen were of making apple pies with my grandmother, unfortunately I have yet to master the perfect crust. A fatal flaw in my culinary skills. When I was a kid my grandparents had an apple tree in their backyard and it would be full this time of the year. Take your family apple picking and experiment with a new apple recipe this fall or fill your freezer with homemade apple sauce.
I feel like everyone gets to busy in September. We need to take a beat and slow down and enjoy the beautiful bounty that is all around us. Pumpkin spice is nice but lets get more creative this fall and try new flavors.
