Did you know that New Hampshire’s state fruit is the pumpkin, and that we hold a huge pumpkin festival every October in Keene that breaks all records for pumpkin largeness?

Gather your jack-o’-lanterns at pick-your-own farms, then head out for the pumpkin treats we found for you below to join in the very New Hampshire spirit of celebrating the great orange one.

One of the things we think you should try this fall is the Handmade Roasted Butternut Squash Cappellacci from the Tuscan Kitchen in Salem pictured on the right.
