Fall Fruits

apples at farmers market

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.
