You know it’s officially fall when Dunks brings out the pumpkin flavored treats and the orange Halloween Oreos hit the shelves in markets all around town. The apples are ripe and ready for picking, and the idea of warm apple cider tempts every New England native. It’s not just a turn of seasons, but rather a homecoming of spirit and local tradition.

With fall comes a variety of seasonal products that are to die for. From mom’s homemade cinnamon apple crisp to salty pumpkin seeds the food of autumn is appetizing to all. “My favorite is homemade pumpkin pie, it’s good,” said Austin Bumpus, ‘14. Other student favorites include candy corn, pumpkin bread, squash soup, and homemade applesauce. If you’re looking for some festive recipes try Better Homes and Gardens spiced pumpkin donuts (http://www.bhg.com/recipe/quickbreads/spiced-pumpkin-doughnuts/), Martha Stewart’s apple crisp (http://www.marthastewart.com/316288/apple-crisp) or Whole Food’s butternut squash soup (http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipe/classic-butternut-squash-soup).

Although autumn isn’t solely about the delicious foods they are a key focus towards setting the mood of the season. But for those who prefer to take part in fall activities there are an endless number of things one can do. Whether it’s apple picking at a local orchard, attending a football game, venturing through a corn maze, or simply just taking in the foliage–the opportunities are limitless. With nearby access to farms, corn fields, and a picturesque setting, it’s very easy for the HB community to enjoy their autumn activity of choice.

Make the best of your autumn 2013, try new season foods and new activities this season and you won’t regret it! Fall back into the fall spirit, and enjoy these popular New England classics today.
