Acorn Squash Salad with Maple Vinaigrette Recipe via Marcia Selden

Fall is the right time to get your squash on, and acorn squash is one of our favorites. Choose acorn squash that is heavy for its size, with a hard skin free of blemishes. Marcia Selden pairs this with the sweetness of a little maple vinaigrette, bringing out the flavor in the already desert-like squash. Enjoy this recipe for Acorn Squash Salad with Maple Vinaigrette.

Our Favorite Jewish Holiday Recipes: Brisket, Veggies, An Apple Tart & Honey Cake

Photo: Tami WeiserJust as the evening temps begin to cool and farmers’ markets are bursting with bright mounds of apples and pears, Jewish cooks shift their focus to preparing meals for Rosh HaShanah, the New Year celebrations. This year, the holiday begins at sunset on October 2 and ends on the eve of October 4. 

There are plenty of symbolic ingredients associated with the holiday, making menu planning a fun and meaningful challenge. Seasonal ingredients (apples, pears, squashes, potatoes, zucchini) reign supreme. Flavors traditionally lean towards sweet, referencing hopes for a joyful and healthy year ahead. Symbols of plenty, like lentils, beans and pomegranates, are also included and refer to fertility and wishes for an abundance of all positive things.

Here are some recipe suggestions to get you in gear for Jewish holiday cooking.

Autumn Apple Cherry Crisp Recipe via Westport Farmers’ Market

Apples are the darlings of autumn, and this year we especially cherish them. For while peaches and nectarines and even some pears succumbed to the cruelty of a late frost, most of Connecticut’s apple crop emerged relatively unscathed. And this week Westport Farmers’ Market shoppers are in for treat: the tables of Woodland Farm and Rose’s Berry Farm will be full of this tasty harbinger of fall. 

Fortunately, Elise Meyers is also right on schedule with a recipe for apple crisp you won’t want to miss. As Elise notes, “fall means apples, and apples mean apple crisp.” Her crisp recipe below is, according to Elise, “the best I have ever tried. The addition of dried cherries (or cranberries or apricots, if you prefer) makes it unique.” Savor it alone, with a scoop of Nutty Bunny vanilla frozen dessert, or fresh cream from your favorite vendor.
