Fall Fruits are in Season Now!

The leaves are changing and the temperatures are finally dropping, which means that fall is finally here after a long summer. Culinary traditions in fall are some of the best throughout the year, as they take advantage of the fresh ingredients that are at their peak in this season of transition.

If you love fruit, here are three fruits that are in-season that you should definitely take advantage of!

Pears

This fall fruit is fresh and ready for picking during this time of year. Not only is it great to eat by itself, but you can also use it in a variety of desserts. While cinnamon might commonly be associated with the next fruit on the list, this spice pairs perfectly with pears in some of the best sweet treats.

Apples

Apple cider, apple pie, and apple crisps. It’s that time of year again when apple trees all over the Northern Hemisphere bear fruits and put us into an apple frenzy. From September to November, take advantage of the bounty of apples both for snack eating as well as dessert and drink making!

Cranberries

Cranberries are an underrated fall treat that has a variety of uses. The tart flavor of cranberries goes great in cocktails and is also used in a classic fall side dish known as cranberry relish. In addition, cranberries are also a “superfood” that is full of vitamins and antioxidants.
