When I lived in New England I went apple picking each Fall season and there is nothing like a fresh Macintosh off the tree! There are so many wonderful foods of fall. I eat pumpkin year round for its excellent nutrients, but carving them with my kids was always fun. I love your banner and posters!

Another attribute that affirms fall fruit over fall junk food is their diverse presentations.

Junk food generally limits itself to one form that perhaps may be varied in terms of if some bar needs to be cooler for some eaters and warmer for others.

But fall fruits might be drunk as broth or juice and eaten baked, candied, cooked, fresh, fried, grilled, jammed, jellied, sauteed or souped. Their popularest presentation likely would be fresh, correct?

DerdriuMarriner on 08/19/2023

Thinking about junk-food alternatives caused me to consider the diverse presentations of fruits' healthy companion, vegetables.

Would you be planning to write a similar-organized wizzley about fall vegetables?

DerdriuMarriner on 08/18/2023

Your last-paragraph comments about attractive, healthy fruit versus junk food caused me to think quite a bit about the foods necessary and not necessary to happy lifestyles.

A beautiful, healthy environment gives such a reinforcement to a delicious, healthy diet. Isn't it such a statement in favor of our fruits that their trees always improve the way their planting spaces and surrounding areas look?

DerdriuMarriner on 08/17/2023

Your writing a similar-organized wizzley about fall nuts could be quite helpful what with September just around the corner.

The south and the west yards respectively have a chestnut tree and a black walnut tree. Would your list of fall nutty favorites include either of those?

DerdriuMarriner on 08/15/2023

It's helpful that your last paragraph lists junk fruit as ultimately not as healthy and tasty as fruit. It's lamentable too all the many more calories that junk food lodges in our bodies.

Mightn't junk food also be criticized for such bad edible components as the fats, preservatives and sodiums that they put inside us?

DerdriuMarriner on 08/14/2023

My favorites are berries (especially cranberries), pears, pineapples, pomegranates and pumpkins.

Pumpkins always hold a special place because isn't it great that, even as actual fruit, they will work in fruit- and vegetable-style presentations, won't they?

I believe it's an apple. I also love oranges but they are (in my country) more available in the winter.

DerdriuMarriner on 08/12/2023

Pumpkins are such aesthetically architectural, subtly scented fruits.

All their drinkable, edible presentations enchant me even as I particularly favor pumpkin jams, juices, pies and soups as well as pumpkin butters, sauces and syrups. Pumpkin seeds in all their presentations likewise interest me.

Pumpkins also never let one down in regard to their carving aspects and to their candle-lodging aspects.

Would you be likelier to put a pumpkin-scented, an other-scented or an unscented candle inside a carved pumpkin?

DerdriuMarriner on 08/11/2023

It's so likeably healthy the way persimmons cooperate as baked, candied, cooked, dried, fresh, fried, jammed, jellied and juiced items.

Additionally, what with all the eye health-friendly lutein and vitamin A, it's so environmentally sound that every part of the fruit can be used, what with peels as candy and seeds as oil, powdered seasoning and raw or roasted edibles.

Here, persimmon soups nicely with such squashes as butternut and with sweet potato. Would you happen to have tried what internet sources call curried persimmon soup (with curry powder, ginger, onion, pepper and salt)?
