Easy Recipe Ideas to Make the Most of Fall Slideshow

Can, Can, Can

Canning can seem like a lot of work, but if you focus on the rewards, it can also be a lot of fun. There’s still time to get the last of the tomatoes and put them up for winter. You’ll thank yourself come January.

Make canned tomatoes.

Broaden Your Horizons

While there are plenty of fruits and vegetables available in the fall, it can still feel like the selection is a little limited. But are you really taking advantage of everything that autumn has to offer? Now’s the time to go back and try some new recipes for foods you thought you didn’t like. Brussels sprouts with some lemon and Parmesan, collards with a little bacon and broth, or a cabbage gratin. Try buying a couple vegetables you don’t normally eat and doing something new with them.

Make roasted Brussels sprouts.

Embrace the Coziness of the Season

If summer is the time for enjoying the outdoors, fall is the time for enjoying your home. On a chilly day, there’s nothing better than the aroma of a rich braise or stew in your house. Or weekend breakfast of bacon, eggs, and buttered rolls. It’s time to break out all those dishes that seemed like too much a few months ago.

Make braised pork with apples.

Turn on the Oven

Remember when you were thinking of making a peach pie, but couldn’t bear to get your kitchen that hot? Well, that’s not a concern anymore. Autumn is the time for your favorites sweet treats like pumpkin pies, apple tarts, and pear crumbles.

Make classic pumpkin pie.

Stock up Your Freezer

In addition to canning, freezing is a great way to keep the flavors of summer until you can get them fresh again. It doesn’t work everything but it’s great for summer staples like corn and green beans.
