Five Fall Recipes that arent pumpkin

Rest assured folks, the pumpkin recipes are coming.

While pumpkins are definitely the star of the show when autumn arrives, it’s not the only player on the team.  There are apples, pears, squash, and greens, just to name a few.  Here are a few fall recipes for you to try – that don’t involve our friend the big orange gourd.

1.  Turnip Greens – greens are absolutely a Southern staple!  If you aren’t a fan of traditional turnip or collard greens, kale, spinach, and mustard are all in season right now.

2.  Hard-Spiced Apple Cider – this recipe is something The Husband and I look forward to every year as soon as the weather starts to cool.  Simmer a pan of this on your stove and your house will smell wonderful.  Add a jigger of spiced rum for added warmth.

3.   Sweet Potato Pie – this pie is a favorite Southern alternative to traditional pumpkin.  A praline topping makes this one extra delicious.

4. Butternut Squash Soup – While squash may not be my favorite fall vegetable, I can get excited about a good butternut squash soup.  This recipe has smokey bacon and a pinch of spicy cayenne.

5.  Oatmeal Brulee with Ginger Cream – Many people associate oatmeal with blah and boring.  Not this recipe.  This is definitely my new favorite way to eat oatmeal. It’s warm, it’s filling, and with all the fruit and ginger cream topping, it is far from being blah and boring.
