The Best Dishes to Celebrate the Fall Harvest

October 26, 2017

Fall, seductress that she is, knows how to draw you in. Just head to the farmers market—the fiery oranges of hard winter squash nestle up next to the dark leafy greens, punctuated by rosy apples and beets and maybe a purple cauliflower or two. And let's not forget the wonderful alien weirdness of wild mushrooms! And those twee little gourds that you always find yourself buying! It's harvest season; how are you supposed to resist?

Don't. Because fall's harvest is in full swing, and we've rounded a few (okay, a lot) of our favorite recipes that scream autumnal! Go ahead—grab fall by the cornucopia (and make these recipes).

Love all the squash but look forward to the gourds. Bought a bag today. Four perfect small pumpkins with stems! I buy them now for Thanksgiving. Make placecards and hang them with jute onto the stems at each setting. The strangely twisted gourds are used in Halloween display by the front door. Fall 🍁is my absolutely favorite season🎃🦃!
