Seasonal Autumn Ingredients

Autumn has officially arrived in the northern hemisphere. To celebrate, let’s have a look at some seasonal Autumn ingredients!

Squash

Squash is everywhere in Autumn cooking, especially butternut squash, kabocha, and pumpkins. Pumpkins are usually used in sweet recipes such as pumpkin pie, but most other squashes are used in a variety of savory dishes. These meals can be as simple as pan roasted kabocha squash, and as decadent as curried butternut squash soup.

Chestnuts

There is nothing quite like biting into a hot roasted chestnut on a chilly Autumn evening. These nuts can be gathered directly from the tree or bought in bags from the grocery store, then used in a huge range of Autumn cooking. Chestnut desserts like cakes and crepes are especially popular, but we recommend trying them in savory recipes like this chestnut stuffing.

Persimmon

Every Autumn, we are gifted with sweet, plump persimmons. There are actually several varieties of this fruit, each with its own unique but delicious flavor. They are a joy to eat raw, but you can also use them in your home cooking. Persimmon salad is absolutely wonderful, as is persimmon bread.

Mushrooms

If you’ve ever been in a forest in Autumn, you’ve probably noticed mushrooms springing up from the moist soil. Not all of these are edible, so please don’t pick any wild mushrooms without consulting an expert. Instead, try picking up shiitake, portobello, or chanterelle mushrooms at the grocery store and use them in one of these tasty mushroom recipes.

Pomegranate

Autumn marks the art of pomegranate season. The juicy beads inside this fruit resemble rubies, and they taste wonderfully tangy. It can be tricky to remove them, but once you get the hang of it, there are plenty of awesome pomegranate recipes waiting for you to try, such as pomegranate couscous and roasted brussels sprouts with pomegranates and hazelnuts.

Sweet Sauces

Here at WN Foods, we often focus on savory sauces. However, we have a sweet tooth too! Let’s learn about a few of our favorite sweet sauces.

Chocolate Sauce

You can’t go wrong with chocolate sauce! It goes well with almost every dessert imaginable: ice cream, cake, and many more. It also never gets boring since you can change the sauce by using different types of chocolate, like milk or dark chocolate. Did you know that we used to manufacture a chocolate sauce?

Vanilla Glaze

Vanilla glaze is another super versatile sweet sauce. We love to eat it with donuts, turnovers, and bundt cakes! Another great thing about vanilla glaze is that you can easily switch up the flavor by adding a side ingredient like citrus or coffee. Yum!

Caramel Sauce

Rich, sticky, and sweet caramel sauce is loved by many around the world. It can be made quickly with the most basic ingredients, and you can drizzle it over so many desserts. Try it with fruit, ice cream, or bread pudding. You won’t be disappointed!

Fruit Sauces

There are so many sweet and tangy fruit sauces out there. Raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, or even a mix of them all are amazing with cheesecake, waffles, and pancakes! We probably use a little too much of this sauce at breakfast, but we just can’t get enough.

Malaysian Food

The beautiful island nation of Malaysia has a diverse cuisine influenced by its equally varied population. Let’s have a look at some of its most famous dishes!

Sate

Sate (or Satay) is one of the most popular street foods in all of Malaysia. This skewered meat dish is often made on outdoor grills with chicken or beef, and it is usually served with a peanut dipping sauce. Locals love to meet up with friends to share a meal around the Sate cart.

Hokkien Mee

Hokkien Mee is a noodle dish widely adored in Malaysia and Singapore. The ingredients used vary by region, but common ingredients include soy sauce, prawns, cabbage, chicken, and oyster sauce. It is a filling dish that can be adapted to fit your tastes.

Nasi Lemak

Nasi Lemak is so popular in Malaysia that it is considered the national dish. The main focus of the dish is the creamy steamed rice, which gets its rich taste from coconut cream. The foods served on the sides depend on where you get your Nasi Lemak, but they often include peanuts, anchovies, and cucumbers.

Laksa

There are many different types of Laksa, but at its base, this dish always has noodles and soup. Some favorites in Malaysia are Curry Laksa (noodles with a coconut-based curry soup), Nyonya Laksa (sweet and spicy noodle soup), and Asam Laksa (noodles with a fish-based broth). Try them all and see which one you like best!

Roti

Thanks to its large Indian population, Malaysia absolutely loves Roti (flat bread). It is often served with chili sauce, curry, and egg. There are also sweet variations with banana, condensed milk, or sugar.
