Flavors of Fall
Fall at Sommers Bend is a gorgeous time of year. It’s when pumpkin flavors infuse our spirits, apple cider is made by the gallon and plush autumn sweaters meet the chill of crisp mornings. It’s also the time of year to enjoy the many delicious sweet and savory foods that come with the season.
Warm flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg and apple are popular in fall. Whether you’re baking the perfect pumpkin pie, making homemade pecan pie brownies or getting toasty with an apple cider old fashioned, there’s no shortage of ways to enjoy autumn’s favorite flavors.
With so many options, it’s easy to get caught up in the sweet treats, but savory meals are just as scrumptious. The taste of sage and rosemary is as autumn as pumpkin spice lattes. Consider a sage-dusted pork loin with rosemary, pulled pork sliders with apple cider slaw or fresh chicken sausage with caramelized apple and onions. And don’t forget pumpkin chili topped with rich, creamy sour cream and the nutty flavor of aged cheddar cheese. For an extra dose of festiveness, this recipe suggests serving it in a small pumpkin gourd.
And the delicious meal ideas don’t end there. Grab your favorite pumpkin beer and check out The Modern Proper’s blog post on the 40 best fall dinner ideas to celebrate the season.
