It’s always a bit of an adjustment for me from summer to fall in terms of fruit. I get spoiled by the abundance of peaches, nectarines, apricots, and berries. Then September comes, and I’m not quite sure what to mix into my yogurt or bake in a pie or crisp besides apples, which are certainly not a bad option, but I need more. These are the problems that keep me up at night.
So, I did some research. Besides apples, here’s what we’re working with: grapes, plums, pears, raspberries (into OCTOBER in the mid-atlantic, this is news to me. I just thought the ones at the farmers market were imposters…), persimmons, and quince. Not a bad list. Now, what to do with these fruits besides adding them to your morning yogurt? Here are some ideas to help you embrace the fruits of fall.
Winter fruit salad (a season ahead of us I know, but hello pears)
Plum crisp with maple syrup crumble (you could replace the peaches with pears or apples!)
