It has been a gorgeous September with an abundance of fresh, seasonal produce. Slowly summer fruit and vegetables, such as tomatoes, berries, and stone fruit, are replaced by children of fall. I'm especially looking forward to even more mushrooms as well as to pumpkins and chestnuts. Oh and to baking; lots of it.
I'm leaving Germany soon but will stop by the Viktualienmarkt in Munich before boarding my flight. I'm going to grab some amazing things and turn them into something delicious back home. Maybe I should buy some quinces or mirabelle plums; they're both are hard to find back in Finland. I also need to visit that stall with an impressive selection of fabulous preserves and condiments, such as jams, chutneys, and mustards. Thank you Nicky for the recommendation!
What fall produce are you most excited about? And what would you make with a bunch of quinces?
