Autumn is the favourite season for many of us. The brisk morning air makes for a perfect walk before we head to work, while the colourful leaf displays seem a fair trade for the shorter days.

Whether you are hosting a get together, attending one, or are just looking for a treat, we've included a recipe that uses in-season local fruits and berries.

Wild Blueberry Tart
While the hot dry summer reduced the pick your own apple crops, Autumn blueberry and strawberries are still available at many pick your own farms or can be found in abundance at your local grocery store. Picking your own food can be extremely satisfying and allows you to know exactly how fresh the foods you are feeding your family are.
If you can't make it out to the farm for this recipe, we suggest looking for berries that were grown locally in Ontario. This not only supports local farmers but will likely be closer to their harvest date and more flavourful.
