Ahead lies a beautiful, colorful season. Fall calls for comforting food and spices that warm the whole body from inside out. Think ginger, cloves and cinnamon! My autumn recipes feature pears, apples or still abundant figs. I didn't even have to go shopping for this recipe. The apples and figs come from our garden and the apple cider vinegar, the homemade, unfiltered version, from my storage room. Add honey, onion and some spices and cozy up with this yummy recipe.
