Ready for Autumn

Watermelons at the market last week

Watermelons at the market last week

I always get a little sad as the last few weeks of summer produce make their way into the farmer’s market in September.  I find myself thinking, “Blueberries won’t taste this good for another year” or “Will this be the last of the summer melons?”  And yet, the fall produce appears and I get excited about the amazing things I will get to eat again.  Looking through these photos from recipes tried in years past has me excited for crisp temperatures and fall bounty.  These all need to make a reappearance on my table soon, and until then I will be savoring the last days of blackberries and heirloom tomatoes.

Apple cider donuts are above my skill level but I think they taste best piping hot with apple cider after a couple hours spent picking apples.
