In Season :: Autumn

I live in the north north east but this list covers fall’s seasonal fruits and veggies from far and wide.  This way you can know what to stock up on locally but also, if you want to try something new, you’ll know what’s growing naturally somewhere…

Fruits:
asian pears
cherries
cactus pear (so good, but so not happening where I live)
cranberries (love these fresh as well as dried, both make their way into many of my fall recipes)
grapes
guava
huckleberries
key limes
kumquats
passion fruit
pears
persimmons
pineapple
pomegranate
quince

Squash:
acorn squash
buttercup squash
chayote squash
delicata squash (I seriously love this, you can eat the skin! serve with a strong dandelion pesto and marvel at your greatness)
pumpkin (ah!)
sweet dumpling squash

Veggies:
endive
broccoli
Brussels sprouts (half and cook in olive oil with garlic, delicious)
butter lettuce
cauliflower
chinese long beans (never know what to do with these, must be simple, have a recipe, please let me know!)
daikon radish
garlic
ginger
hearts of palm
jalapeños
jerusalem artichoke
kohlrabi (these look forbidding, but just peel, slice and sautée, easy!)
mushrooms
radicchio
