This year, autumn officially begins on Wednesday, September 22 in the northern hemisphere. The fall equinox signals the turnover of the seasons and a transition from hot sunny days to cooler, brisk days. Food also makes a transition with the change of the seasons. The vibrant, fresh fruits and veggies of summer are now replaced with late harvest products such as pumpkins, squash, apples, and more.
