Fall is great for so many reasons. You can wear your boots again without sweltering to death, and you can enjoy all the seasonal food that it ushers in: pumpkin, acorn squash and butternut squash, for starters. Butternut squash tastes similar to pumpkin. When it ripens, its orange flesh intensifies in color and tastes sweeter. This winter squash is actually a fruit, but it can be prepared as you would any vegetable. We’ve rounded up 19 savory recipes that you must try this fall.
