What's in Season - Autumn

Now that the days are growing ever colder and fresher, a simple salad at meal times will no longer cut it. If you’re anything like us, Autumn will leave you craving comfort foods such as soups, stews, curries and, of course, pasta!

The next few months are the perfect time for indulging in the season’s best fruits and veg – and there are plenty to pick from! Here are our favourite seasonal foods for September and October - perfect for adding to your favourite comforts!

Apples

We all know that we should be eating an apple a day, so head to your nearest orchard or farm and get picking! Apples are full of fibre, while red apples contain quercetin, which can boost the immune system. Get baking a classic apple crumble, or grate into your morning porridge with plenty of cinnamon.

Beetroot

Beautiful beets are in season until the end of Autumn, and can work wonders at detoxifying the liver. Athletes even swear by beetroot juice for an energy boost! We love ours in moist, delicious chocolate cakes, or you could even try beetroot hummus or pesto for a colourful pasta dish with a difference!

Figs

Sweet, fragrant figs aren’t in season for long, but they’re definitely worth shouting about! They are high in fibre and full of minerals, including magnesium, manganese, calcium, copper, and potassium. Why not try serving them with a homemade chocolate tart or mousse, or adding to chia puddings or even warm salads?
