Seasonal Fruits and Vegetables on Your Plate This Autumn

Autumn is well-known as the best time of the year to enjoy a bountiful harvest of seasonal produce. Between the final fruits of summer and the variety of root vegetables coming into season, there are plenty of ingredients available to help you make healthy, delicious meals for yourself and your loved ones. What’s more, purchasing seasonal produce from a local supplier or farmers market comes with additional benefits – including reduced prices and environmental preservation.

Now is the time to take advantage of all the fruits and vegetables that this season has to offer. Review these suggestions to savour tasty autumn recipes and make the most of seasonal produce:

  • Soups – Items such as butternut squash, pumpkins, potatoes, onions, leeks and carrots are all seasonal options that can help contribute to a delicious autumn soup or chilli. You can enjoy a vegetarian meal by making vegetable soup or add lean protein (eg chicken or turkey) for a heartier dish.
  • Chutneys and jams – Seasonal fruits like blackberries, apples, pears and figs can be used to make a homemade jam or chutney. This versatile topping can be spread on toast, paired with cheese, mixed within yoghurt or used in a sweet pudding recipe.
  • Salads – The range of fruits and vegetables available in autumn would all make a perfect addition to a sweet or savoury salad, placed on top of a bed of seasonal spinach or kale.
