    I miss apple-picking season the most out of all the fun things to do in autumn since moving to Los Angeles. The one good thing, however, is that our local farmers' markets often bring apples down from the north and we also get other late summer seasonal fruits and veg at the markets. The last of the fresh blueberries are almost gone so the apples are a welcome sweet treat. Soon it will be pumpkins! Don't throw out the seeds! Roast them, then take off the white hull to get the pepitas, the green seed inside and maybe even roast them again. Those are expensive items at the store but free with your fresh pumpkins! They are a wonderful topping to pumpkin based savory pasta sauces. I mix fresh pureed pumpkin, with cream cheese, a southwestern spice mix. I serve it as a pasta sauce and a thicker version over fish. The toasted Green Pepitas are a wonderful topping along with freshly grated parmesan.

    Great activity for even little people. My 3 year old and 18 mon old loved it they could eat as they went no getting hanger as the day wore on.

    What is so sad is so many apple farms have closed in the 15 years. So many were unable to break even or have a loss.
