Peaches are a sign of summer coming to an end. We draw the curtain to summer and we open it to Autumn. Autumn is my favourite time of year, it means Thanksgiving is just around the corner. For any of my family reading this, you know why. Sitting at Nan’s table waiting for her pumpkin pie was the most delightful and excruciating experience ever – especially when Grampie hogged the whip cream. Also, autumn is a time for what I think are some of the most amazing vegetables and fruits ever.
Peaches are one of my favourites, the way you bite in and the juice dribbles down your chin. Needing hundreds of napkins to sort out the mess you’ve made. They truly are natures candy.
Other produce to look for this coming fall are Squash, Pear, Apples, Sprouts, Cauliflower, Garlic, Ginger, Grapes, Radicchio, Sweet Pots, Turnip and so many more.
