Can't think of any autumnal foods, I don't really do things seasonally.

I make the BEST pumpkin pie ever. People get angry at me when I won't make one for them, and are often willing to pay me $20 each for the things.

Pecan pie and salted caramel hot chocolate.

 

ETA: Applesauce. Our friend does tons of canning and he usually gives us some of what he makes. He also makes delicious alcohol soaked cherries.

Is there really anything seasonal here? I suppose Thanksgiving turkey is on the list, as well as pumpkin pie.

 

Tried a single pumpkin pie spice latte to see how it was; it immediately made me want to put on leggings and Uggs.:lol:

 

For a real treat, for sugar and cinnamon toast I substitute the latter with pumpkin pie spice, and it makes all the difference. I highly suggest you do the same.

I've been in Los Angeles for the past 7 falls so this is the first real autumn I've had since I lived in San Jose/Fremont. But I still remember some of the cooler weather things.

 

Foods:

 

Ah, foods. I'll start making stew again soon. Also spice cookies. And rather than pumpkin pie, might I introduce you to the concept of a Squash Pie. It's basically a pumpkin pie made with butternut squash. It has a nuttier flavor, it actually tastes like something more than a vehicle to bring spices to your mouth. Also pie crust cookies!

 

Drink: autumn beers. Apple cider. Fall is also the season my dad would clean out his wine closet to make room for all the new wines he just bought :wub: 'Tis the season to help my dad drink ::D:

 

Treat: I do look forward to candy corn. But sugar's been tasting strange this past year, way too sweet. I'm living in a somewhat dry state now so maybe all this red wine I had shipped in will be this year's big treat ::P:

 

What I'm most looking forward to is all the amazon gift cards that traditionally get thrown my way right after Halloween when my personal solstice occurs. Because my family has no idea what to get me and I can use it all to acquire a pile of parts for my 'build a computer before the laptop dies' project.

Apples, apple cider, caramel apples, apple butter...huh. I wonder if there is a pattern there? My favorite fall event growing up was also the Apple Festival <.< >.> can you tell I grew up in a place with lots and lots of orchards?

...and now I need to go shopping for lots and lots of apple products

In terms of specifically autumnal? Probably Apple Cider. But honestly, there isn't a whole lot I associate with "autumn", though obviously Turkey Day falls in Autumn so that probably counts. Pumpkin spice is . . . ok. I don't mind it, but I also don't lose my sugar honey ice tea over it.

handmade pumpkin scones, which are made with real pumpkin puree, which isn't made from real pumpkins...

Don’t really have seasonal favorites but Woodchuck’s “tastes just like apple pie” cider is pretty yummy. Chocolate is always a favorite treat. Just keep that pumpkin pie spiced stuff away from me.

10/2: Drink: I actually really quite like Shipyard's Pumpkinhead beer, and Sam Adams' Oktoberfest is an excellent Märzen style.

Food: We're getting the time of year where I can start making chili again...I've won a couple small contests for my chili, and was asked to take over the chili contest at work after winning so much.

Treat: PIE.  I love this time of year, I get to start making pie again.  I make a drunken apple pie (there's a shot of bourbon in it) and I've been threatened that if I don't show up to certain gatherings with my friends with my pumpkin pie, I will be mercilessly shunned.  I'm not sure why, it's just the recipe from the Libby's Pumpkin can, but it's been proclaimed as one of my friend's favorite pumpkin pies, and I'm sworn to bring it to our friends-only-display-of-gluttony-the-week-before-thanksgiving, called Supergiving.

I haven't found a source in Austin yet, but when I was living in Illinois there was an apple orchard that did apple cider donuts. As to beverages I switch to darker beers and the occasional hot chocolate. A gentle reminder that pumpkin spice is not approved of by the Great Pumpkin so those partaking of it shall not receive a visitation no matter how sincere the pumpkin patch....

I keep wondering if I should be pedantic and point out that he who refuses pumpkin spice also refuses the pumpkin pie which uses the spice to its fullest potential.

 

But maybe those who refuse pumpkin spice would also refuse pumpkin pie. I know there are philistines out there who refuse pie. They are weird people who prefer cake.
