Hi Dear Friends!
Autumn is one of my favorite times of year. Spring is the other. I love everything about this Season, it ignites the senses!! The riotous color of leaves, so bright and beautiful. As a child I enjoyed the crackly sound they made when you walked on them. The smell of woodsmoke always brings back memories, the thin wisps rising from chimneys. Pumpkins, mums and scarecrows perched on door steps to welcome family and guests alike. Who doesn't thrill at the sight of a giant harvest moon??
However my most favorite, is the kitchen arts. My step-mom makes the BEST pumpkin bread ever!! It's a beautiful loaf, a rich orange color, moist and redolent with spices, it's synonymous with the fall. Let's not forget pumpkin butter, another delicious treat. Especially yummy on whole grain bread, maybe with a little smear of cream cheese. Remember the joy of those crisp and juicy apples. Pies, fritters, applesauce, cider and apple butter. Of course it wouldn't be Fall if we didn't mention the savory soups and stews. Whether you make them in a crock pot or they simmer away on the back of your stove. The whole house is perfumed with their yummy goodness.
So for those of you who like to share your Autumn bounty, whether a jar of preserves or spiced nuts, here are some labels for you to dress up your jars. I hope your season is warm and wonderful!!
