Before I moved to Canada sweet pumpkin recipes weren’t even on my radar. We’re all about the savoury pumpkin recipes on my island and I was a-okay with that. But now that I’ve been immersed in North American with pumpkin sweets for the past 5 years, they’re basically all I think about once summer starts to fade.
From all the excitement around pumpkin at this time of year, you would swear that it was the only thing in season right now. But, there’s actually a long list of fruits and veggies that are at their best during the fall, including apples, pears, ginger, broccoli, brussels sprouts and, of course, most of the other types of squash. So, today, I wanted to share some recipes for desserts and snacks that are perfect for fall, but don’t contain pumpkin. Because, contrary to popular belief, they do exist.
