Canadians know that with Autumn comes apple picking season, a cherished tradition for many. This calls for you to indulge in the natural bounty of apples! Whether you hand-picked them yourself or bought a bushel from your local farmer or market, put those juicy crisp apples to delicious use in this recipe. Autumn Apple Butter Ribs is the tasty embodiment of fall flavours. This dish showcases the versatility of apples as they transform into a rich butter that coats tender, slow-cooked ribs. The harmony of the smoky grilled ribs combined with the sweet, tangy flavour of the apples will have you craving more.
This time of year, there’s no shortage of pumpkins, so why not use them? Our Grilled Pumpkin with Rosemary recipe is the perfect ode to the flavours of this season – and ensures no pumpkin gets left in the patch! This wholesome and totally simple dish is perfect for sides or a little autumn snack. Eat the grilled pumpkin as is or toss it in another dish, from soups to dips.
Still have apples left over from your last apple picking trip? Throw them on the grill! Grilled apples make for a sweet and delicious accompaniment to pork. Alternatively, you could use them in your favourite apple dessert. Or, let your heart and tastebuds decide and experiment with various apple varieties in whatever way you choose. We recommend you start with ones that can handle the heat, like Granny Smith or Honeycrisp.
Happy Fall Grilling!
