With fall firmly upon us, the wonder of the season is setting in. Something about autumn feels inherently different than any other season. The air is crisp but fresh. The leaves are peppering the horizon with red and gold. It’s beautiful, and there’s no better place to experience the fall than New England. One aspect of fall that nobody really thinks about is the natural flavors that speak to your taste buds this time of year. Whether it’s your local coffee shop or catering in New Hampshire, give all these flavors the attention they deserve this season.
The first thought associated with maple is syrup. For a good reason too, seeing as maple is a sweet flavor that pairs well with savory flavors. Pairing maple with pecans can lead to some delicious sticky buns or gourmet pancakes. At the very least, maple is a staple of the breakfast table whether it’s your mom’s cooking or catering in New Hampshire.
There’s nothing quite as autumnal as a cranberry bog in New England. It just looks right on the eyes. Even better, it tastes good to the taste bud. This versatile berry is a tart flavor that can be blended into dressings, sauces, and salads.
Fall is the best time to harvest apples. Chances are you’ve already been apple picking this season. Apples are a great fall food because they can be eaten plain, turned into a pie, a crumble, a crisp, or a delicious apple cider.
Ginger is a root that can be used for a variety of purposes. It’s popular in Asian cultures as a palate cleanser. This spicy yet subtle flavor can be used to enhance dishes like stews, pork chops, and, of course, gingerbread. It’s also great for your sinuses if you suffer from seasonal allergies.
Two other favorite flavors this time of year are cinnamon and pumpkin. However, those flavors are so widespread that you didn’t need an article to tell you about it. This fall, give these flavors a try when you’re trying a new dish or ordering catering in New Hampshire.
