Autumn has arrived in Up State New York!

I'm a four season gal! I just love the change of seasons ... to me, it's always a new beginning ... Fall is one of my favourite seasons .... Mother Nature never disappoints.

With fall comes the joys of enjoying warm soups! I love a bowl of soup on a chilly autumn day!

As I mentioned on a prior post, I've been taking/watching cooking classes on the Craftsy platform. This soup is called Cauliflower and Leek Potage with Nut Brown Butter.

The recipe is from the class Building Flavorful Soups with Peter Berley. Great class by the way! I learned lots including how to make nut brown butter. It does add a wonderful flavour to your soups!

The by-product of soup making ....

Not as many discarded vegetables. That's because I have learned in this class that I can freeze the leek leaves to be used in a future stock. I didn't know you could use the ends of the leeks to flavour stocks.

This bag is in the freezer waiting for me to make stock! How clever!

Thanks for stopping by my little corner in Cyberspace! Catch you later! Cheers!

I do love the fall colors, but it is hit and miss around here, even in Connecticut.
Some areas haven't turned, so we get to enjoy the season longer, just hope the winds don't blow all the leaves away.

Fall is always so showy - much more so than spring.

I did not know that you could save the leek leaves either.

Oh I would love to see one of those famous New England Falls. Here Autumn can be brief and not very noticeable as native vegetation tends to grey green year round - beautiful but not the riot of colours you get, however briefly. On the plus side little can come close to our stunning winter/spring wattles!
I lack the freezer space for bags of veg so I make stock concentrate and freeze it in ice cubes. I guess it is practical but it is certainly nowhere near as pretty. Your soups are making my mouth water! LOL
