Leaves won’t be the only thing changing this fall, keep reading as we walk through 4 ways your cooking changes in the fall (and some great recipe inspiration!). As the weather continues to get colder, we notice a few things starting to change, we start to wear more clothing outside, we tend to drink more warm beverages and our cooking habits can also start to change.
As we head deeper into fall, we get different fruits and vegetables that come into season and our recipes tend to adapt to include this in season produce. Some of the produce Ontario-grown produce that you can find in the fall includes apples, squash and pumpkins (check out the full availability guide here). In the fall we tend to want to turn on the oven to roast our dinners and we tend to use the crock pot and Dutch oven more often
