Sweet Fall Root Vegetables

Last week marked the official start of the fall season, and it’s a great time of year to take advantage of the sweetness that root vegetables have to offer. One of my favorite foods in season this fall/winter is butternut squash. They are versatile, have tons of flavor, and are a comforting choice any time of the day. When you cook root vegetables (for ex., carrots, squashes, sweet potatoes, turnips, and rutabagas), they become soft and sweet. Therefore, read more at: Sweet Fall Root Vegetables
