I'm over the most popular tastes of summer and enjoying the rich flavors of the late summer crops, deep purple grapes, sweet fragrant figs and crunch succulent corn!
I've scattered sour pomegranate seeds over deserts like Aşure, stuffed & braised white cabbage leaves, savored roast cauliflower with sumac and cumin and devoured Turkish pumpkin dessert Inspired Cheesecake already and throughout this month I'll also be looking out for these in-season favorites;
Spinach (Ispanak), leeks (Pırası), Broccoli (brokoli), and Beetroot (Pancar)
Persimmon (Cennet or Trabzon Hurması), cornelian cherries (kızılcık), ripe mandarins (Mandalina) quince (Ayva) and Turkish bananas (Yerli Muz)
Through November and the following month, I'll hope to discover recipes for Jerusalem artichoke (yer elması), various types of turnips (Turp) and Celeriac (Kereviz).
