As we near Halloween, my seasonal fruit larder is changing. Gone are peaches, plums and nectarines replaced by pomegranates, apples and persimmons. Hamada Farms and Twin Girls Farm supply my pomegranates, and I choose apples from Hidden Star Orchards, Devoto Gardens and Flatland Flower Farm. As usual, I turn to my fellow bloggers for recipes and creative ideas about this fall fruit.
Elise's Simply Recipes is normally my first stop on the Internet for recipes. "Try the recipe from Elise's site," I often tell friends asking how to make pork this or beef that, "I trust her recipes and they've always turned out for me." I've had the pleasure of tasting Elise's apple butter, and am looking forward to trying the recipe for myself this year.
Jocelyn blogs about food at her site Brownie Points in Portland. I found a great recipe for Apple Spice Pancakes with Pomegranate Syrup on her site that I'd like to try. Local food blogger Fatemeh has an interesting recipe for Cocoa-Pomegranate Roast Chicken with Eggplant Stuffing that looks like it would be great to serve to guests. And wrapping up the pomegranate recipes, Stacey at Just Braise has a delicious looking recipe for Bourbon-Pomegranate Molasses Beef Short Ribs with Broccoli Rabe
Here on Bay Area Bites, Shuna gave us her persimmon pudding recipe a couple of years ago that looks tempting.
