Autumn is my favourite season.

I think it’s all about the produce, and what we can make of it, and possibly that we have tried to be good all summer and now it’s Autumn we can have a few of life’s little luxury items.

At the beginning of autumn, we have the last of the summer fruit, ripe and plump to use in pies, crumbles and poached deserts.    Just watch out for what Mr Supermarket tries to sell you though.  Some of this stuff has been in cold storage a little too long. Hubby sliced into a perfect looking peach the other day only to find it was all brown and nasty inside.  The worst of it he had bought 6 of em.  Sheesh.

I making jam from leftover fruit or end of season fruit that you can pick up from the farmers market.


Mushrooms are available in Autumn.  If you get the chance to pop on down to the Prarahn Market, you have to see the mushroom man.



Pumpkin, all shapes and sizes are available from our Farmers Markets and speciality vegetable shops. 
Apples. The majority are at their best now. 













So what’s in season for us in Melbourne?
