Each year, my local Junior College opens its 365 acre farm, vineyard, and agricultural center for an open house, during which the public can learn, taste and pick fresh produce for $1.50 per pound. Fall harvest is my personal favorite: my family had a blast filling our reusable canvas shopping bags with apples, sugar pumpkins, eggplants, squash, peppers, and basil. Here are some of the top recipes from Chef Meg and other SparkPeople members that I've been using in my own kitchen to enjoy the Fall produce. I look forward to hearing which are your favorites too.

    Acorn squash stuffed with hamburger and onion; butternut squash, pumpkin (canned) mixed with nuts and Fage, and apples, apples, apples! The pumpkin dip is good; can't wait to try baked turnip fries! - 10/23/2011   11:39:12 AM

    I adore roasting root vegetables and squash. In the last week I have tried two new squash variaties: carnival and strippetti (similar to spaghetti squash). Yum! - 10/22/2011   8:57:22 PM

    I enjoy many different dishes made with winter squashes - especially curried roasted squash. Yum! Sadly, my CSA had the squash field flooded out in early June, so we didn't get many from that source - but I can still stock up via the farmer's market. :^)

    My kids really like fresh apples, but not cooked. Apple cider is another fall favorite. I like to take a gallon of cider and cook it down into syrup - it tastes really magnificent on a pecan waffle. Concentrated (kind of tart) apple flavor - yum! - 10/21/2011   9:57:40 PM

    The cooler weather always makes me think of soups, wonderful, yummy soups, which are way too hot to enjoy here in south Texas in the hot climate this time of year. - 10/21/2011   1:15:05 PM

    I don't have them often. In fact, I can't remember when I had my last one, but I do love a nice baked apple. You know, the ones stuffed with brown sugar, walnuts and cinnamon. maybe a little vanilla ice cream on the side. ;) - 10/21/2011   12:09:07 PM
