10 Fabulous Fall Flavors
by Frances Largeman, RD

Certain things conjure up images of autumn, like colorful leaves, football games and hayrides. Food also plays a large part in defining the fall season and many of its celebrations are based on the harvest. We picked our top 10 fall foods based on the fact that we just couldn't get through the season without them.

Take a taste of sweet apples, earthy root vegetables and pork loins and sip the warmth in a mug of hot cider. There's so much to do in the great outdoors during autumn, but it's always nice to look forward to a comforting, warm meal at the end of the day. Bundle up and enjoy these fall flavors!
