10 Amazing Recipes to Make the Most of Your Fall Harvest

In many parts of the country, fall is harvest season, when fresh produce is particularly plentiful. As you prepare for the winter ahead by putting away your patio furniture and readying the exterior of your home, round up whatever’s left in your garden or head to the farmers’ market to enjoy the flavors of the season. Stumped for recipe ideas? Here are a few I’d recommend to make the most of the fall harvest.



  • Maple-Roasted Chicken and Acorn Squash: You can’t go wrong with some roasted veggies served with moist, bone-in chicken thighs. This recipe calls for acorn squash, carrots, and onions, which are sweetened slightly with a drizzle of maple syrup.
