As the air turns crisp, the Autumn season approaches. Autumn is a wonderful time of the year for flavours and colours, as vegetables and fruits start to come back into season, allowing us to go on a culinary adventure.
Pumpkins are usually the main act during Autumn, as they’re very popular during Halloween. They are a versatile ingredient, used for soups, purees, and even desserts. But there are many other vegetables and fruits in season during Autumn: butternut squash, brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, pears, cranberries, and more.
But probably one of the most popular fruit is apple. Apples are the perfect Autumn fruit, popular because of their crisp texture and diverse range of flavours. With so many different types of apple available, there is a wide variety for every taste.
Apples are a great source of fibre, which helps with digestion and to maintain a healthy full feeling. They are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants.
They can be enjoyed in many different ways, as a simple snack or part of a bigger meal. You can transform them into a sauce or use them for apple pie!
Autumn offers many unique tastes, from the comforting warmth of pumpkins to the crispness of apples.
