It may still feel like summer, but there's no denying just the slightest hint of fall in the air. The night arrives a little earlier, the stars shine a little brighter, and you can almost smell the earthy scent of leaves. I do love fall, and I'm looking forward to our fall crop of foods.
Some of them I already have ideas about:
- sweet coconut rice with pawpaw
- beach plum crisp
- skirrit latkes
- sunchoke spanish omelette
- rustic pizza with arugula pesto
And then there are the:
- cucumber berries
- air potatoes
- mint root
- sea kale leaves
- asian pears
- ground nut
The cucumber berries are ready right now. Perhaps they will be my next victim. I've been on a pickling roll, and that seems like a good thing to do with them. Or put them in a tabouli! For now, we are busy eating the hot peppers and tomatoes out of the garden. Oh, and we just harvested a bunch of concord-type grapes. What flavor! We froze a bunch to eat throughout the winter. Mmmm.... I couldn't help but eat a handful of the frozen ones already.
