Apples could be considered a fall staple. Whether bobbing for them in a metal tub or baking them in a pie, apples have become synonymous for the autumn season. Fall is the peak season for apples, meaning they are much more abundant, so you’re likely to get them at an inexpensive price. Enjoy them in a salad, as a snack, or in a delicious baked cobbler.
Brussels Sprouts have made an intense comeback in the years of the recent past. No longer are these tasty treats refused at the dinner table by little ones. Made right by just tossing them in olive oil and baking, Brussels Sprouts are quickly becoming a family favorite in homes across the country. Roasting Brussels Sprouts in the oven is a great way to bring out their natural sweetness, and provide a yummy alternative to the way they may have been prepared in your childhood.
