Flickr finds: Fall Harvest

Oh the bounty of Fall! Is it time for apple pie yet? Yum!

Gorgeous lighting in this old corn field.

Jiro persimmons are sweet and high in vitamin C. For a recipe for the Hachiya’s click here


Loving the lone tree in the back, again just really nice colors and light.

Figs are such a treat!

Nothing says fall like a pumpkin and I love making pies from it!

In Half Moon Bay the brussel sprout fields go on for miles.

Here’s a recipe for these delightful little guys on the grill:

Ingredients
1 pound Brussels sprouts, as uniform in size as possible
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions
Heat a grill to medium.
Cut off the stem end of the Brussels sprouts and remove any yellowing outer leaves. Place the Brussels sprouts into a large, microwave safe mixing bowl and heat in the microwave on high for 3 minutes. Add the olive oil, garlic, mustard, paprika and salt and toss to combine. Allow the sprouts to cool until you can handle them. Skewer 4 to 5 Brussels sprouts onto each metal skewer with the stem ends facing in the same direction, leaving at least 1/2-inch in between each sprout. Place the skewers onto the grill with stem end closest to the flame. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Turn the skewers over and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Serve as is or for additional flavor, remove the sprouts from the skewers, return them to the original mixing bowl and toss with any of the remaining oil and garlic mixture before serving.
