Round up the whole gang and dress in your best for a spine-chilling, homegrown Halloween meal.
Start by gathering the fruits of your organic fall gardening efforts, or head to your local farmer’s market to see what’s in season.
Boo! Prepare a Spooky and Scrumptious Homegrown Halloween Dinner (Because even goblins and ghouls prefer homegrown on Halloween.)
Scary Snacks. Cook up a few frightful and finger-licking good snacks.
- Mischievous Veggie Tray – Complete with tomato eyeballs and carrot fingers.
- Phantom Pumpkin Pudding – Stuffed with yummy cranberry-raisin bread pudding.
- Cackling Caramel Apples – Use fresh-picked apples for the best taste!
- Ghouly Goodies – Make with homegrown or local eggs.
- Midnight Morsels – Dark cheeses and fruits elevate this cheese tray from berry to scary!
Frightening Feast. All the best fall flavors featured in fangtastic dishes.
- Witches’ Brew – A cursed homemade cider.
- Sinister Soup – A terrorific tomato soup.
- Autumn Arugula Salad – Shadowy colors and supernaturally good squash.
- Acorn Squash Cauldrons – Overflowing with chestnuts, apples and leeks.
- Bewitched Brussel Sprouts – Oozing balsamic goodness.
Daring Decor. Use organic and recycled material to create eco-friendly Halloween decor.
- Stack, scatter and spread pumpkins and gourds inside!
- Transform old wine bottles into decorative jack-o-lanterns.
- Add corn stalks and Indian corn.
- Make a spooky skeleton using recycled milk jugs.
- Plant paranormal plants in dark containers using organic soil. We’re thinking: spider plants, earth star plants, black orchids and Venus flytraps.
