Fall is here, and it’s time for hot cider, hearty stews and, naturally, pumpkins and apples. They’re everywhere – piled in front of grocery stores and farmers markets, decorating the classroom and even gracing the front desk at the gym. And why not? They’re colorful, festive, have a long shelf life and…yes, they taste pretty darn good.
If you’re always on the look for something beyond the basic pumpkin or apple pie, you’ve come to the right place. Apples and pumpkin have been on my radar for a few weeks now, so I’ve collected quite an assortment of recipes to try. Between those and my already tried and true faves, you’ve hit the mother-load of delicious fall recipes. Plus, if you’ve ever contemplated how to create your own pumpkin puree (or even if you haven’t), you’ll never believe how easy it is. I’ll give you the simple step by step ingredients along with pictures along the way.
