Fall is definitely my favorite season. Sweaters, scarves, hot chocolate, pumpkin flavored everything. The smell of leaves. Bonfires. I can’t think of a more magical time than autumn. Of course, seasonal foods are always a favorite. FaveGlutenFreeRecipes.com has a host of amazing recipes for fruits and veggies that are in season. Namely, apples.
One of the best things that you can do when you go shopping for groceries is to by fruits and vegetables that are in season. It means that a) they are fresher, b) haven’t traveled very far to get to the grocer, and c) will be cheaper. And cheaper is always better. Apples are normally very cheap; when you get them in season, they tend to be even cheaper. This is because the grocer buys more apples; therefore, they must sell more.
Apples are delicious this time of year. There’s just something really perfect about a crisp apple on a cool day or a hot cup of cider on a chilly night. Apples and early fall definitely go hand-in-hand.
