Whether you have had the satisfaction of picking and harvesting fall fruit as mentioned in our previous blog, or you've just finished a quick trip to the grocery store, MOLLY MAID suggests spending some time being productive in the kitchen to make some delicious preserves you can enjoy all year 'round!

It is the season where cooks hurry to preserve the flavours of the passing year for their enjoyment throughout the dark and dreary months. Spicy plum chutney enjoyed with a Christmas ham, or apple jelly on a slice of creamy brie, evokes memories of the departed summer.

Fall is as much a time for preserving, as well as a time for celebration with Fall Fairs happening around your community. Grace the table with savoury and sweet sauces from your crop of fall fruits and berries and use them as accompaniments with meats and cheeses, or even as homemade gifts! 

So, as you reach for your apron, tackle your bounty and try some of the below recipe ideas from MOLLY MAID on how to deal with the overwhelming amount of fruit (before the worms do)!
