If you like pumpkin pie, then you may want to try this Fall-spiced metheglin. This is meant to brew up a 1-gallon (3.8 L) batch, but feel free to scale the recipe up.

We’re not sure if the metheglin served to royalty was any better than a peasant’s variety, but we’re sure the spices make this mead fit for a king.

Hobgoblin Turkey

Digital and Plus Members Only

This is one of the most delicious recipes you will ever make. We use
a Cajun injector, available at Metal Fusion (800-783-3885) for $6.45.
They also are sold at Walmart and K-Mart stores. This is optional, but
it’s a great way to have a butter (and beer) basted turkey. If
available, purchase a natural, free-range bird. Don’t count on many
leftovers from this turkey!

Sweet Potato Hobgoblin Biscuits

When our children were little, this was the only way we could
convince them to eat sweet potatoes. If you want to maintain the
tradition of sweet potatoes on the holiday table, try these delicious
biscuits (just don’t tell the kids what’s in them). These are quick and
easy to make. Just boil and mash the potatoes the day before. Makes 12
biscuits. This recipe can easily be doubled.

Lindeman’s Lambic clone

Digital and Plus Members Only

Lindemans was founded in 1822 and has a solid reputation as a blender and brewer of traditional, authentic lambics. The brewery produces four fruit lambics: kriek (cherry), cassis (black current), peche (peach) and framboise (raspberry). This same basic recipe also can be used to emulate other fruit lambics, from fraise (strawberry) to druiven (muscat grape).
