Don’t exclude the grill when chilly weather arrives, plenty of menu options are available

Don’t let the chilly weather deter you from grilling. Carrots, turnips, rutabagas, and potatoes are all available in abundance during the fall season. There are several reasons why you should make the grill your go-to in the fall for many of your meals.

4 ways to embrace a fall menu while grilling

1. Hearty root vegetables are perfect fall-grilling items.

Root vegetables like carrots, rutabaga, and turnips grill up perfectly.  Not only do fall root vegetables take well to grilling, but fall is the prime season for root vegetable harvest.  Further, fall provides much-needed relief from the summer’s heat and humidity when it’s difficult to think of turning on the oven unless you have to.

In addition, fall is a great time for grilling fall root vegetables because the flavors of fall root vegetables are so wonderful when grilled.  The natural sugars in fall vegetables caramelize on the grill and bring out their full flavor.  Fall carrots shine with a little honey and thyme or rosemary, fall turnips take to a maple syrup glaze, fall rutabaga do well with a little olive oil and fresh thyme.

2. You can grill fall fruit for dessert!

Grilling fruit is one of the easiest ways to prepare fall fruit because it brings out the full flavor of fall fruits while simultaneously caramelizing them. Fall fruits like apples, peaches, plums, and pears have fantastic fall flavors that are brought out when grilled. For fall fruit on the grill, cut fall fruit into wedges or slices on about a ¼ inch thick and brush with a little bit of oil. Grill fall fruit for 2-3 minutes on each side until grill marks form.

3. Grilling is the easiest way to cook fall vegetables for maximum flavor.

Grilling fall root vegetables and fall fruit brings out their natural fall flavors and preserves their fall color. Fall produce like cauliflower, butternut squash, and green beans take to grilling well since fall is in the middle of fall harvest season.

4. Nothing says fall like a big hunk of meat cooked on the grill!

Nothing beats fall flavors better than fall meats grilled over the coals. Fall is the perfect time for grilling fall proteins because fall proteins are naturally hearty and have fall flavor built right in.

Outdoor fall cooking isn’t just about fall vegetables and fall fruit. Fall meat grilling is fall food preparation at its finest.
