India’s Ingredients – Fall Is Here!

Ever wonder what to do with your pumpkins after carving them for Halloween? Instead of letting them rot on your stoop or letting teens smash them on the streets, turn them into healthy and energy boosting snacks. For as long as I can remember my parents roasted pumpkin seeds and every year I thought it was the weirdest thing. Roasting seeds that only a week ago you were scooping out of the wet and gross guts of a pumpkin, why would you do that? Last year I went apple picking for the first time, I have never eaten so many apples in one day. When I arrived back at home, I decided to make apple cinnamon muffins. Even though I burnt my first batch and set the fire alarm off twice, I still managed to convince my dad to let me make a second batch. Fall is my favorite season because as you make your muffins, you look out the window and see the amazingly vibrant yellow leaves forming. Linked below are two recipes for two incredibly tasty snacks that will help you clear out your fridge filled with apples and pumpkin scraps.

Four and Twenty Blackbirds sells the most amazing piece of warm apple pie. I have been going to this pie shop ever since I have been able to comprehend how amazing pie is. Here is the location: 439 3rd Avenue, Brooklyn 11215. This shop is my cheat shop. On weekends when I just want to be at home, watching a movie and eating pie, this is the place to go and get some. They have so many options and add new pie flavors monthly. Get your Thanksgiving pies from here or go grab their cookbook and try it yourself! You can buy a whole pie for $42, though experience extremely worth it!

Marquet Patisserie is a charming French patisserie that will serve you a piece of pumpkin pie that makes your day. Ever since I was little I would go to Marquet in the mornings and buy my parents coffee. One morning I went and saw a whole rack of freshly baked pumpkin pies, I truly had never been more excited about Thanksgiving. To buy a whole pie is $37 since it is a small family based business overpriced food is inevitable, but it is worth the extra bucks. The family aspect of the cafe is what makes it special. Though the cafe is small, the food and interactions with the employees is the recipe for a great day. The location is:  221 Court St, Brooklyn, NY 11201.
