Just because your summer garden is finished doesn’t mean that fresh fruits and vegetables have to be done as well. Here are a few ways that you can take full advantage of the fall fruit and veggie pallet this fall.
One of the healthiest options this fall are brussels sprouts. They are the freshest from September through February and with the many different ways to cook them up, it’s an easy way to add variety to any hearty fall meal.
Another good, hearty fall vegetables are the cabbage and other leafy greens. Some of the best for fall are kale, mustard greens, cabbage, and collards. These are freshest during the colder months and are rich in antioxidants and other vitamins and minerals. Combine them with other fall favorites and create a fresh fall salad.
And of course, there are the iconic pumpkins and carrots of the fall season. Both are rich in vitamins and can add a pop of color to any meal as well as providing that truly unique fall flavor.
