October culinary highlights

In October, we make it a little easier for you to say goodbye to the warm season - with delicacies from pumpkin, tuber, apple and pear!

The October

Summer is coming to an end, the leaves are slowly changing colour and taking on countless shades. The days become shorter and a mystical time begins. Autumn not only shows itself in its dazzling and buty colours, but is also reflected in the culinary arts.

All around the pumpkin

Pumpkins belong to the genus of berry fruits and are therefore possibly the largest berries in the world.

The flesh and seeds of the pumpkin contain many valuable ingredients. With a water content of over 90 %, pumpkin is one of the low-energy foods. The large number of vitamins and minerals makes pumpkin a real power vegetable.

In Austria, pumpkin cultivation played a role in the warmth-favoured areas of eastern Austria (Lower Austria, Burgenland and Styria). Oil production is mainly documented for Styria, but also parts of Burgenland.

Apple

Apple

The great variety certainly contributes to the fact that apples are among the most popular types of fruit. There is a perfectly suitable apple variety for every dish and every taste - the taste ranges from sweet to tart to sour.

Pear

Pear

The pear not only tastes good raw, but is also very versatile in the kitchen. Both salty and sweet dishes become a culinary highlight with the pear.

Tuber

Tuber

The most popular tuberous vegetables include potatoes, carrots, radishes, celery, kohlrabi and beetroot. Tuber vegetables contain a lot of vitamins and minerals.
