Are you ready for the start of fall? September is a month of transitions. Hints of autumn are in the air, days are getting shorter, children are going back to school, and the first crops of fall are making their way to local farmers markets. September typically marks the beginning of the fall harvest and offers hearty produce that is usually difficult to find during the summer months. This book from PBS Food will show you fun and delicious ways to cook with seasonal fruits and vegetables common in September harvests – including nectarines, kale, apples, artichokes, Brussels sprouts, and eggplant. Example recipes include ‘Chunky Apple Butter’, ‘Smoky Baba Ghanoush’, ‘Grilled Artichokes with Spicy Lemon Aioli’, and more!
ABOUT THE SERIES
As more and more people join Community Support Agriculture (CSA) programs and shop at local farmers markets, it can be a challenge to eat with only seasonably fresh ingredients. This series from PBS Food will help you make the most of your fresh produce on a monthly basis.
There are many advantages to eating fresh, locally produced fruits and vegetables. Produce that is offered at your local farmers market will offer many beneficial nutrients, and it may be organic or contain fewer pesticides. It could be less expensive than what you find in the supermarket, and will provide you with an opportunity to support local farmers.
