Fall Feast – Celebrate the Flavors of Fall!

Fall Feast – Celebrate the Flavors of Fall!

September 22 marks the fall equinox and the official beginning of the new season.  We’ve all seen the return of pumpkin spice lattes over the past few weeks, but there are so many other flavors, fruits, and veggies that are iconic of the fall season.  When planning fall meals and celebrations, don’t forget these delicious seasonal treats!

Apple:  The fall apple harvest means hot apple cider, apple cinnamon donuts, caramel apples, apple pies…there are so many ways to incorporate this delicious seasonal fruit into your next meal and gathering.  Add a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, or ginger and these sweet and delicious treats will warm you on those first chilly evenings!Denver Breakfast

Pomegranate: This little fruit comes into season each fall with celebratory red colors and bright flavors.  Not to mention, pomegranates are packed full of vitamins!  Try adding pomegranate to your morning yogurt and granola, or spice up a seasonal salad with these delightful little berries.

Pear: Pears are also in season during the fall months and make any meal sweeter.  We like to add them sliced thin on sandwiches, or mixed in with a fall garden salad, and of course a pear tart with cinnamon and ginger makes for an enchanting fall desert!

Maple: At The Original Pancake House in Denver we enjoy hot maple syrup year round at our breakfast table, but maple is a great flavor to add to any dish this time of year.  We love to make maple pound cake and maple muffins for a yummy fall treat.

Butternut Squash:  We love this little gourd even more than pumpkin!  A warm bowl of butternut squash soup on a cool evening is a heavenly comfort meal.  We always season with a bit of fall spice such as ginger, nutmeg, and a dash of cinnamon.

The next time you are out for breakfast in Denver; try some of our fall favorite menu items at The Original Pancake House.  Our Apple Belgian Waffle and our Apple Pancake are chock full of fresh granny smith apples, with flavors of cinnamon and maple.  And Sara’s Pumpkin Pancakes are not to be missed with rich pumpkin, molasses, and pie spices.  Happy fall Denver!
