Apple and pears…oh my! We are in the best part of the season right now. We have loads of delicious apples and pears already harvested, yet more to come! Apples and pears are the quintessential and versatile fall fruit, in our opinion. I know everyone loves pumpkin spice this time of year, but you can’t pack a pumpkin in your lunch like you can an apple or pear! They are great for eating fresh out-of-hand, baking into treats, cooking with, and even gifting.
Butter Board Baby! Butter boards are all the rage online! What started out as a softened butter and toppings dish evolved into all sorts of boards! Our favorite has been the cream cheese board with lots of fresh produce, like greens onions, pickled onions, dill, chilies, cilantro, and even pomegranates! There is even a dessert version with melted caramel and apples. Whichever board you choose to try, just don’t forget to add all the good freshy fresh produce!
🧡 Did you know that California grows almost 100% of the persimmon crop in the United States?
🧡 Harvest season usually starts around the beginning of October and goes through December.
🧡Fuyu Persimmons are short and squat and have a sweet flavor with a hint of cinnamon and apricot when ripe. They can be eaten raw when they are firm or soft and do not need to be peeled.
