Autumn Recipes

Autumn is that time of year where we wave goodbye to the summer and instead embrace everything the colder seasons bring our way. We're talking comfort food and seasonal fruit and veg like apples, pumpkins, leeks, pears and plenty more. They all evoke cosy nights in and really delicious, filling foods that warm us up from the inside.

We have plenty of warming soups you can try like our leek and potato soup which is a classic and so easy to make. It's ideal on a cold evening and uses seasonal ingredients, making it a real crowd pleaser. Most of these soups you can happily enjoy as a main for lunch or supper or even as a dinner party starter.

We love slow roasted meat and veg, stews and casseroles in autumn as they're really easy to throw together and certainly warm us up on those extra cold nights. We have plenty of really easy recipes to make ahead, freeze and enjoy at a later date. As the nights grow longer and the days shorter, they're the ideal solution when you don't have the energy to make dinner after a long and busy day.

There aren't too many varieties of berry left in season during autumn, except blackberries which remain in season for a little longer. They're ideal for making jams or flavoured liqueurs, which can be packaged up beautifully, and ready to give as gifts at Christmas if you're thinking ahead.

Our blackberry and apple cake is an absolute dream this time of year as it's full of seasonal fruit and it goes great with a dollop of cream or even ice cream if you want to enjoy it hot. It's a really beautiful centerpiece and your family and friends are sure to love it.

Embrace autumn and all the wonderful fruit and veg it has to offer by giving some of our autumn recipes a go. Perfect for cosy nights in, they're really simple and enjoyable to recipes to both make and eat.
