23) Autumn equinox eats.
I love all the equinoxes but Mabon and the shift to autumn is good for my spirit. I was born in the dark of winter and enjoy celebrating the slow death of summer. Gala’s and Macintosh’s chopped with lemon juice, maple syrup, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Coconut oil hand smashed into rolled oats, sugar, salt and flour. I think apple crisp smells better toasting in the oven than pie does. I also wanted to make pumpkin pie but felt lazy about forming a crust. In the notes for the Raw Pumpkin Pie recipe in Oh She Glows, Angela suggests if you don’t want to make the crust you can put the filling in the freezer and make it into pumpkin fudge. The best part of the pumpkin pie. Next stop, Samhain!
