Fall: A Perfect Time to Enjoy Harvest Fruits and Vegetables

Fall: A Perfect Time to Enjoy Harvest Fruits and Vegetables

Oct 18 2020

Fall in Michigan conjures up pleasant memories of harvesting apples, pumpkins and squash; pickling vegetables; apple cake baking in the oven; and all of the smells and sweet succulent tastes that go with it.

While many who grew up in Michigan have vivid memories of being in the kitchen making apple pie or eating fried donuts and caramel apples at an orchard, not all fall food has to be full of sugar or high in fat. And the good news is, you don’t have to sacrifice taste to create delicious autumn delights. Enjoy these nutritious recipes that include seasonal fall crops.
