Pumpkin Beer

I love everything about fall food. I love sweet potatoes, I love stews, I love soups, I love roasting a whole chicken and picking the bones clean all week, I love baking potatoes and stuffing pork tenderloins with apples and I love gingerbread pound cake with pears simmered in spiced rum. I love the farmer’s market right now, full of thick heirloom tomatoes and apples that not only taste like apples but actually smell like apples. I love pies and cobblers and I love evenings cool enough for a smoky cabernet or a rich malbec.

Or a pumpkin beer!

Fall fall fall fall fall fall.

    I am growing a BIG Pumpkin Patch this year– 80′ x 120′. I’ll be making some Pumpkin Ale this Autumn, as soon as I get a ripe one.

    Oooh, ooh, ooh, one day to September!!1! Another hot summer, can’t wait for fall.
    Squash? Meh. Gingerbread pound cake? ZOMG! Where can I find a recipe for that? Cause rhubarb’s going out of season and there’s only few farmers’ markets left.
    And pumpkin beer, huh?

    Fall produce coming on strong in the garden. Canning tomatoes. Root crops. Wine perking away in the carboys. Yeah, I love fall.
