Fall Fruit Recipes
After summer's ripe berries and juicy stonefruit fade, fall brings a harvest of succulent figs, plump grapes, and baskets filled with apples and pears. If you prefer them fresh, you can eat them out of hand or work them into autumn fruit salads.
As with fall vegetables, most autumn fruits work well when you roast them in the oven or, in the case of pomaceous fruits such as apples and pears, stew into simple, but nourishing sauces.
Pomegranates, with their tart and juicy arils, make a nice complement for salads or you can toss them onto dessert as a garnish. While fresh cranberries, whose season lasts only a brief window in October and November, work well as sauces or in smoothies.
