5 Recipes to Make with Your Autumn Harvest

12th September

For some, autumn marks the time to take a break from gardening while for others, it’s still the season of labouring away. Whether you’re pruning or packing up, there’s no doubt still some September gardening jobs to get crossed off. Luckily, it’s not all labour and no fruits because there’s plenty to harvest in the garden at this time of year. Some growers even struggle to think of what to do with their harvests.

No need to fret! We found 5 delicious recipes to help you welcome the new season and make the best of the most common autumn harvesting homegrown goods.

 

Leeks and Pumpkins

Colder weather stirs on cravings for hearty and warming foods but before you get yourself armed with a hand blender to whip up the autumn/winter duo of leek and potato soup. Why not try an alternative combination of this leek and pumpkin frittata recipe.

Leeks and pumpkins are both in season, so this is a great recipe if you’ve grown both vegetables. However, if you haven’t, not to worry! There’s no harm in buying the other vegetable wherever you prefer.

Cauliflower

An autumnal twist on a cheesy classic! Add cauliflower to macaroni cheese to replace a portion pasta for a simple way to make this a healthier dish. To make sure your cauliflowers will taste great in this cauliflower macaroni cheese recipe, be sure to harvest them when the heads have developed but the curds are still tightly closed.

Sweet Potatoes

Who said flavoursome salads are only reserved for summer!? You can still enjoy tangy flavours with autumn blooming vegetables! You can enjoy the warmth in the flavour and appearance of something like this roasted sweet potato salad. Don’t feel limited to sweet potatoes. However, whichever potatoes you’ve grown will go nicely once combined with the range of other flavours. We would also recommend Pink Fir Apple potatoes.

Apples

If you have an apple tree in your garden, then every year you’re greeted with many apples blooming from branches. You might even be wondering how you’re going to consume them all. The good news is, this apple and cinnamon porridge recipe may be the answer you need!

Topping your porridge with apples is a delicious way to look forward the day during the darker and colder mornings. However, be sure your apples are truly ripe. All they need is a gentle twist and they should come off with their stalk.

Apples and Cranberries

Later in the season, you may start to feel festive and want to get more creative with what you could make with your crops, especially heading towards November. We think these apple and cranberry hand pies would do the trick to get you in the spirit of transitioning from autumn. Aim to harvest the last of your apples by the middle of October and begin picking the first of your ripe cranberries in October too!

Now you have got some new ideas about the unique ways in which you can enjoy the fruit and vegetable crops you’ve been growing. We hope you feel inspired! If you’ve already got your own recipes, we’d love for you to tweet us on how you’ll be enjoying them.
