Fall is here! The perfect time of year to head into the kitchen and use your Thermomix® to cook with seasonal products. Get inspired by these recipes to cook with two of our fall favourites: apples and pears.

Storage: it’s best to store apples and pears in a cool place or in the fridge. They will keep fresh for weeks.
Overripe fruit: do you have some overripe apples or pears? Juice the apples, make a pear-smoothie or dice the apple and use in a crumble. In juices or smoothies, you can use the entire fruit. Your Thermomix® will be happy to blend it, core and all!
Save for later: peel, cut, core, and freeze your excess apples and pears to ensure you can continue making your fall favourites all year long! If you don't want to freeze the apples, cook up a quick compote to eat over the next few days.
Know your varieties: crisp varieties of apples and pears are best for baking since they keep their shape and also brown very nicely!
Using apple sauce: for a ligther dessert, replace some of the butter or oil in your recipe with some homemade apple sauce.
