    Somerset at Harvest

    Watch the segment HERE.

    Fall is in the air, winter squash, fruits and vegetables are appearing at farmers’ markets, and farms are wrapping up the growing season with their harvest festivals.   It’s time to stock up for the cold months ahead on the last of the season’s bounty.  Two powerhouse foods are at their peak – apples and sweet potatoes – and, while delicious solo, they pair beautifully as in our Sweet Potato and Apple Galette with Oatmeal Streusel Topping.

    Stop at your local farmers market for the ingredients  we got ours from Clarion River Organics (sweet potatoes) and Dawson’s Orchards (apples).

    Be sure to get out and enjoy the crisp fall air and fall colors!  Harvest festivals are still going strong through October.  If you’re in Southwestern Pennsylvania, here are just a few we know about:
