SPICE IT UP FOR FALL SEASON
Falls harvest is a robust onefull of deep colors, rich, comforting flavors, and an abundance of produce thats suitable for long-term storage. To complement your bounty, youll want to stock up on your favorite seasonings. Warming spices are appropriate for the ensuing change in temperatures (cinnamon for the pumpkin, apples, and pears; nutmeg for the turnips and raspberries; ginger for the cranberries and pears; cayenne for the Jerusalem artichokes), but theres always a place for any favorite spice (tarragon on the sweet potatoes, caraway in the beet dish, and sage in the cornbread).
Unexpected produce and creative seasoning make for fun in the fall kitchen.
Leek and potato soup is a wonderful fall staple, but this year try adding some parsnips and celeriac, along with oregano, saffron, and/or dill.
Make slaw out of green and red cabbages, but also try shredded turnips and beets, with a handful of poppy seeds and a hint of savory.
Mash rutabagas in addition to potatoes, and be sure to include nutmeg or garlic, onion, parsley, caraway, and/or chives.
Serve raw kohlrabi sticks alongside carrot sticks. Substitute celeriac for celery in just about any dish. Or sautι it, solo, then season with a little thyme and oregano.
