Fall is New England's signature season, in both foliage and food. It brings the flavors of tradition - apples and cranberries, maple syrup, squash and pumpkins in vivid colors and interesting shapes. Hearty chowders and stews. Indian pudding. Pancakes, with the fruit of the orchard. And the abundant bounty of the sea, so much a part of life from Connecticut to Maine.

"Chestnuts roasting on an open fire." Those six simple words from "The Christmas Song," written in 1944, create a vision of holiday cheer that has stood the test of time - a crackling fire to ward off the cold and dark of a winter evening, friends and family gathered nearby and the simple, delicious pleasure of eating sweet, meaty chestnuts. One hundred years ago, those chestnuts undoubtedly would have come from American chestnut trees, once a dominant species in East Coast forests. But by the time Nat King Cole crooned those famous words, the trees were nearly gone, felled by a blight.

Planked salmon makes an attractive and delectable summer main course for entertaining. I offered two recent guests this entree with corn on the cob and coleslaw, but some steamed sugar snaps and a plate of sliced heirloom tomatoes would also make tempting sides. Our two guests certainly liked fish cooked this way; they both asked for the moist smoked salmon recipe! Grilled Salmon on a Cedar Plank Serves 4 One cedar plank (see note) 4 salmon fillets, about 1-inch thick and 6 ounces each 1/3 cup soy sauce 1/4 cup pure maple syrup 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice 1 teaspoon minced garlic 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro for garnish 2 tablespoon chopped green onions, white and green parts only, for garnish 4 lime wedges for garnish Soak the cedar plank in water in a roasting pan - or other pan big enough to hold it - for at least 40 minutes; leave the plank in the water until ready to grill.

Every February, Tina Shupp gathers spiles, braces, bits and buckets before heading out with a small group of people into the woods surrounding the Hashawha Environmental Center in Westminster. She shows the group how to identify red maple trees that are at least 10-inches in diameter and 40-inches in circumference. "A tree of that size is about 40 years old," Shupp said. "That's the right age for tapping. You can hurt the smaller, younger trees if you tap them too early." Shupp was leading a group that was participating in a sap-gathering program at the center.

On a brisk sunny afternoon, several mothers and their children carried galvanized buckets, drills and hammers into the woods surrounding Bear Branch Nature Center in Westminster. They identified the tallest, hardiest maple trees, mostly by their silvery white bark, and set to work on the first phase of a process that could end with maple syrup. "Mom, drill please," said Victoria Dinisa, 9, of Littlestown, Pa. "I need to make a big hole." Actually, Victoria only needed to twist and turn the hand drill, called a brace and bit, long enough to place a 2-inch hole in the thick bark.
