With the start of October comes a new shopping list of in-season vegetables and fruit. It may feel like with summer coming to an end and the cold weather looming, that produce would be limited and unexciting, but for my money October is one of the most plentiful months for fresh local produce here in NY state. With the much-welcomed cooler nights and mornings, we are seeing more greens again, if we are lucking there might be some peppers and tomatoes still lurking around, plus of course we have all of the squash, the apples, etc. So many fresh and tasty treats to get creative with. Look for a recipe here on Tasty Yummies later today that features some of this beautiful produce.
What is your favorite October produce? I think for me it is a tie between apples and pumpkins.
