So, in addition to being my favorite time of year weatherwise, a lot of my favorite fruits are available and in peak season.
Last year, my parents turned me on to a new variety of apple - the Ambrosia.
If you like apples, you need to seek this bad boy out.
They're crisp, they're sweet with a nice tart note to them, and they're huge. I cut one up for my office mates, and there was plenty for everyone.
They're also incredibly pretty- they come from Canada, as do so many great things and wonderful people.
You can only find them in fall and winter, and don't let the price tag put you off - they're worth every penny.
