Expert Tips

Fall brings a bountiful variety of apples. For this recipe, use apples that are good for cooking, such as Rome Beauty, Johathan and Stayman.

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamins A, a nutrient that is believed to offer protection from cancer and the degenerative aspects of aging.

Round out this hearty fall meal with the best garden produce; toss mixed greens with diced zucchini, yellow crookneck squash, red bell pepper and herb vinaigrette. Accompany it all with steamed fresh green beans and whole-wheat rolls.
