The leaves have turned and we’re fully embracing Fall and all that it brings - including changes to our menu. Here are some key Fall foods that pair well with the season:
• Apples - Eat them straight-up or cut them up and cook in a pan with some cinnamon and honey for a sweet side.
• Cinnamon - Add it to oatmeal, hot chocolate, or the apples we just mentioned. If you’ve never tried Ceylon cinnamon, give that a shot for something a little different.
• Carrots - Comforting in soups and also good as a side when cut up and cooked with butter and a little brown sugar.
• Cranberries - These are great to add a little kick of interesting flavor to everything from salads to casseroles to desserts.
• Pecans - Another versatile Fall staple that adds a rich, buttery flavor as well as some fiber, copper, and protein.
• Squash - Low in calories but a great source of calcium and iron, we love squash (acorn, butternut, or spaghetti to name a few) and its unique flavor.
