I thought of this forum as I was picking out the ingredients to do my famous fall/winter spaghetti sauce. I make a big pot of sauce with ground beef mixed in and then add a bell pepper, plenty of onion, yellow squash chunks, and Zucchini and let it simmer for a couple of hours. It got me to wondering if any of you have a special fall or winter inspired sauce that you make each year with all of your fresh vegetables?

Make a similar one to yours except I leave out the beef, and call it may veggie sauce. I also saute butternut squash in garlic, add goat cheese and some pine nuts put that over chocolate pasta.
I will do left over roasted chicken, add it to saute green peppers, or red peppers, tomatoes and zucchini. over pasta. Love my cauliflower pasta sauce also.

I do not have a special sauce that I make, but I really should. This sounds so delicious right now. If I were to create my own sauce, it would probably include pumpkin. I am huge on the pumpkin spice craze, but even more so on the pumpkin itself. I love all sorts of squash. I also enjoy a bit of spice to my sauces.

I usually don't do much more than cook tomatoes to freeze for winter, but a friend of mine went on a preserving bender this fall. And thankfully she is sharing with me! So far I have several jars of tomato/garlic and onion sauce, curried squash soup, apple butter and tomato /jalapeno jam. She found a small organic farm and has been buying produce and the most wonderful eggs (including turkey and duck eggs) all summer from them. I don't think I will ever eat a store-bought egg again.

A spiced apple pear sauce sounds really good right now too, I might put one together in eh Crock Pot this week. If anything I just love the spicy apple smell that floats through the entire house. I make a big pot of it and then freeze what we do not eat right away.

This reminds me of the leftover sauce of spaghetti that I cooked for my birthday (October 23). It's still intact in the refrigerator and I am thinking of converting it into a sauce for macaroni. Well, they're almost of the same genre except that macaroni sauce would taste better with bits of celery. But we have no celery in the garden so I just have to buy from the market.

that does sound lovely to smell in the house. Reminds me that I have been wanting to make poached pears in brandy.

I just cook tomatoes until they turn into sauce and add fried onions to it:) I know it doesn't sound great, but it's quite yummy, and I love eating it:D

Anything is good with fried onions. Fried onions are my favorite and I add them to anything I can get away with. We call them grilled onions here though, even when they have been fried in a pan.

I don't do this with any garden vegetables but I do it with leftovers in the refrig and make soup which gets changed several times as I add more and more to the base before it is all eaten up. A great way to use up the leftovers.

This is very true, anything is good with them:D My favorite foods are pasta with fried onions, cooked white beans with fried onions and fried eggs with fried onions:D Those are the perfect Fall treats.
