What does this season smell like to you?
With apologies to our jellies south of the equator who are in spring, what does autumn smell like to you?
I’ve got a heavily seasoned chicken roasting in the oven, and it makes me think of fall. Scents from certain herbs and spices make me think of cooler weather and approaching winter. There’s lots of pungent sage, rosemary, and tarragon in the air.
While we don’t have four distinct seasons here in the Hawaiian Islands, I was raised in the South, so I remember the seasons well. I also remember the cooking by my mother and grandmothers at this time of year.
What aromas are wafting around you now?
