Fall is a great time of year – the air is growing crisper, and later in the season, frost hugs the trees and plants. Gardens are ripe for picking and the leaves on the trees are changing color – providing for spectacular hiking opportunities and gorgeous photographs, no matter where you go. It’s also the time for family festivities and other celebrations, from Oktoberfest to Halloween. Pumpkins are, of course, the order of the day for most celebrations and couples take pictures in pumpkin patches for Instagram!
Here are some of our favorite pumpkin dishes for the Fall season.
Just like your grandmother’s family recipe, pumpkin pie is a favorite nearly everywhere in America.
Best made with freshly-picked pumpkins from your favorite local pumpkin patch, making pumpkin pie is nearly as satisfactory as the result! Luckily, it might not be too cold yet for a pig roast or barbecue, and pumpkin pies go deliciously with any one of our dishes.
There’s nothing to take the chill of the morning off like a great big bowl of pumpkin soup. It can even be topped with fresh-harvested dill or cilantro. Harvest your pumpkins and scoop out the insides for that delicious, filling pumpkin soup.
One of the best pumpkin desserts around are pumpkin muffins or cupcakes! Available as ready-made mixes, or can be made from scratch. They’re a perfect addition to our customizable menus for your perfect fall family gathering.
While it may be more expensive to acquire, using pumpkins as an additive to pancakes can produce some fantastic results. Similarly to pumpkin muffins, these can be made from scratch, or with a kit. But we are able to customize our breakfast menus to accommodate your pumpkin-most desires.
Planning a Fall Wedding? We’ve Got You Covered
