3 Recipes That Will Have You Falling for Freshness

The dog days of summer may be over, but with the autumn season comes cool nights perfect for enjoying the company of family around a bonfire, days that beckon a trip to the local apple orchard and soft flannel that’s made for an on-farm hayride.

Luckily, Indiana provides an abundance of fall agritourism activities, allowing families and kids of all ages to connect to agriculture in the form of farm animals, corn mazes and fruits and vegetables that are in season during fall.

The recipes on the next few pages take advantage of that seasonal bounty with fresh ingredients including sweet potatoes, apples, pears, cranberries and pork – fitting since October is National Pork Month. Celebrate with Cider-Glazed Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Mashed Sweet Potatoes. The glaze on the pork joins the pumpkin trend, featuring a seasonal pumpkin ale as one of the ingredients, which is available at several breweries across the state.

Bring the Autumn Harvest Salad to your next autumn get-together and impress guests with both flavor and presentation. This dish features pears, blue cheese, dried cranberries, spicy pecans and roasted butternut squash, popping with color. It can be layered horizontally on a large platter or traditionally in a trifle dish. Either way, it’s delicious.

Cranberry-Apple Foster is a fall spin on traditional bananas Foster. This recipe amps up the flavor by cooking the apples in apple brandy, then serving them over easy-to-make cinnamon ice cream. You can even keep the cranberry-apple mixture warm in a crockpot for transporting, then spoon it over ice cream, pound cake or angel food cake after reaching your destination.

Happy fall feasting!

    I LOVE ALL YOUR PICKLES and take pride knowing they are grown and perfected in my home state. We lived in Florida for the past 17 years and I stocked up and took a few cases back with me to Fl, when we came home for visit. I will not make potato salad without them and I have had rave reviews on my salad and it’s always asked for at family get togethers. I’m back her permanently now and so happy to be able to buy them as I need them. Thanks and keep on going on, YOURS ARE THE BEST!

    Cooking is mostly to taste – except meat – you better cook that stuff up! No one likes a cute little bout of food poisoning. If you are wanting to branch out and try new veggies or new foods, my advice to you is cut it up, throw it in a pan with olive oil and salt and pepper and give it a try! I always love a little oregano and chili powder thrown in, but you do you, friend!
