What I love about Autumn is the way this season arrives quietly. Then, with it’s palette of earth tones and brilliant yellows, reds and oranges, it slowly paints the landscape.

In color and flavor, this palette perfectly matches the Fall harvest: mushrooms, apples, pears, squash, nuts, and many more.

I ‘know’ these fruits and vegetables ripen this time of year because they require colder, damper weather. But I always ‘feel’ they really ripen simply because their flavors and colors faithfully reflect that earthy scent in the air, and the vivid array on Autumn’s palette.

Autumn doesn’t stay long, but it brings so much!
