Fall is here! We are so excited for our favorite Fall activities like pumpkin carving, apple picking, and biking with friends.
One of our favorite things to do is cook with fresh, Fall fruit. Here are our top fruits for the season and how we cook them.
Apples are as classic a fruit as you can get! They come in dozens of colors and varieties, and range in flavor from sour to sweet. If you want, you can make a homemade yogurt with Greek yogurt, cinnamon, and honey.
Dip some apple slices into the yogurt to give your apple even more flavor and texture. When you’ve finished the apple, grab a spoon. Your yogurt is still waiting to be eaten.
Pears are another classic fruit, which belongs in every fruit bowl. Like apples, they come in plenty of colors and textures, ranging from a deep green to a light brown. Pears are delicious at any color.
And if you want to spice up your snack, slice up a pear and eat it with some blue cheese, honey, and chopped walnuts. Though this recipe used to belong on a cracker, there’s no reason to keep it that way!
Florida is America’s biggest producer of oranges, and Florida ships country wide! Grab a Navel, Valencia, or Clementine and enjoy a snack packed with vitamin C and antioxidants. If you want, Martha Stewart recommends a great and simple recipe!
First, peel the orange and cut it into circles. Drizzle the circles with olive oil and vinegar, and add a tiny bit of salt. Sprinkle them with parsley, olives, feta cheese, and almonds. A delicious snack.
Plums are a hand-sized, delicious Fall fruit snack meant to be eaten in a single go. If you're feeling brave, there are lots of ways to turn a fresh plum into a jam, and even a few ways to make it into a roll-up snack! “Amanda’s Cookin’” has a long but easy version of it.
First, pit and chop the plums. Bake that at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Then, blend the plums with honey, lemon juice, and cinnamon. Dehydrate that for 7 hours at 155 degrees. Now that your plum ‘leather’ is complete, cut it with some scissors and roll it. You’re ready to eat.
Finally, we have grapes. One of the most famous of all fruit, grapes also ripen in the late Summer and early Fall months. You can make a terrific grape jam, or you could dry and cook the grapes to get homemade raisins.
Grapes are always best as they are. So, once you have a vine, wash them and eat up!
