‘Tis the Season for Baking
With Fall setting in and the crisp nip in the air becoming ever-present, we are drawn to warmth and comfort. We find baking to be the perfect remedy to a bitter cold day — the oven fills the home with soothing aromas and the baked goods warm our bodies. Breads, muffins, cookies are made in batches for sharing, and with the holidays just around the corner, this is another reason to celebrate the transformation of batter and dough into firm crusts with soft centers.
What excites us most about Autumn baking is the opportunity it provides to enjoy the delicious California cantaloupe harvest once more while it’s still the season. Juicy California cantaloupe adds moisture to baked goods while also enhancing the overall texture of each batch, contributing a subtle sweetness.
