Autumn - the season of colour, mellow sunshine, long shadows and delectable bakes.
2020 has been a somewhat unusual and testing year for us all. It has seen us in social confinement but also spending more time exploring long walks in the Suffolk countryside, and what delights we can produce in our kitchens. Some of us may even have honed our baking skills worthy of The Great British Bake off!
Now as winter draws in and the season of changing colour, it’s about time we rekindled our love of baking, making great food and exploring the produce at hand. So, we thought we would explore some autumn recipes and seasonal delights.
These three BBC Good Food recipes not only look delicious and perfectly autumnal but taste fantastic. A real comforting feast for the family!
Let’s start with a vegetarian favourite. How about a beautiful combination of sweet and savoury flavours in your Autumn pie?
This comforting apple, cheese and potato pie recipe puts a savoury twist on an autumnal pudding favourite, with tart apples, buttery potatoes, creamy cheddar and a kick of wholegrain mustard. Sounds like an interesting combination doesn’t it? If you want to make the pie extra-special, our rich and creamy Suffolk Gold Cheese is perfect with apples!
Looking to take your meat pies to the next level? This humble classic will leave you wanting more!
The next level steak & ale pie is straight from a chef’s book of secrets with the additions of bacon, miso and sweet brown ale for a deep umami flavour. Although it takes four hours to prep and cook, it looks very much worth the wait! Better yet, the filling can be frozen for up to three months, perfect for those chilly evenings. Don’t forget to add butter to your next delivery if you’re making the pastry!
Did you know… Pies are an ancient dish invented by the Romans.
Fancy something sweet to finish off your meal? This warm and crunchy pudding is perfect with bay leaf custard or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
This pear and blackberry crumble will really get you into the season of colour with a great combination of colourful fruit, warming spices and a crunchy nut and oat topping. Have a go at making your own aromatic custard with eggs, sugar, whole milk and bay leaves, or serve with a generous scoop of good quality ice cream for the ultimate crowd-pleasing dessert!
We hope you get a chance to cook these autumn delights to enjoy with your friends and family during the chilly season. We love to see how creative our customers are, so please do share your final bakes with us on our Facebook page!
