Meet Our Local Peach Growers: The Sawatzky Family

posted on June 27th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Keep it Local May we just declare, our local California farmers are the absolute best? We know this because we've maintained loyal relationships with them over many, many years and have learned an incredible wealth of knowledge from every single one of them when it comes to their produce we carry in our stores. Today's farmer spotlight goes to Richard and Lavone Sawatzky - the amazing folks behind our seriously sweet and juicy peaches. Coming from a family of farmed grapes and raised chicken, Richard Sawatzky had never grown nor picked a fruit tree until he met his future wife Lavone, whose family farm of table and raisin grapes would flourish into a tree fruit farm. Growing up, Lavone spent many days working on her family's farm and thus, had great experience and passion for the hard work. During the early years though, her family field packed all of the fruit and her father would drive to LA to sell it, just to make ends meet. It wasn't until later years that they… Read More

From Our Deli: Grilled Peaches with Balsamic Glaze

posted on June 27th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

CONTEST* Don’t forget to enter our #BFGetPeachy Peach dessert contest for your chance to win a $500 gift card! **** California Peach season is here. It's one thing we look forward to every year. Because peaches can be enjoyed almost every season, they are truly at their peak of sweetness come June and July. So, with only the very best peaches in our stores, we're pulling out all the stops for peach-inspired recipes that are sure to make you peach lovers swoon. Like our Grilled Peaches with balsamic glaze in our deli. After we pull perfectly ripe peach halves off the grill, we give them a drizzle of our own Aged Balsamic Vinegar. This really makes the flavors pop. Sweet and smokey, these grilled peaches can be enjoyed instantly on their own. We suggest warming them up in a preheated 350 degree oven for 5-7 minutes. Then serve with either our fresh burrata cheese or you favorite vanilla bean ice cream with some torn mint for the ultimate appetizer or dessert Read More

Taste the Sweetness in Our Summer Peaches

posted on June 25th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Don’t forget to enter our #BFGetPeachy Peach dessert contest for your chance to win a $500 gift card! Super sweet summer peaches are officially here! We’re so in love with the the fuzzy and juicy fruit that screams summertime too. And dare we say our peaches are better than any variety we’ve tasted elsewhere? So how do we ensure that our peaches rank supreme? It starts with our dedicated farmers, whose passion lies in the thoughtful and meticulous growing of the exceptional fruit. Swearing to the Sweetness Unlike so many peaches you’ve regretfully eaten, our local peaches are tree-ripened until they've reached the peak of sweetness. Our multi-generational farmers we’ve come to know and trust have learned that timing is everything when it comes to picking only the perfect peaches off of their trees. Calling all Peach Lovers & Science Buffs The Brix Scale – this system is the key to the sweet peach promise. Our farmers swear by it and now, so do we… Read More

Summer Sweet Tooth Fix: Peach + Plum Galette

posted on June 22nd, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Don’t forget to enter our #BFGetPeachy Peach dessert contest for your chance to win a $500 gift card! Details here! How is it that during the hottest months of the year, when one is supposed to wear the least amount of clothing, such delicious food like BBQ and fruit pies are so religiously celebrated? It's not exactly fair if you ask us. But alas, the best fruit pies and all the delectable pulled pork, brisket, burgers, and brats shall be eaten. Because, summer. One of our favorite (not-beach-body-approved) recipes has got to be for the trusty, never fails, fruit galette. Easier than pie...and without that second layer of crust (so a wee bit healthier, right?!), the fruit really has a chance to shine - both in the beautiful appearance of the finished product and of course, the bold, perfectly sweet, fruit flavors. This Peach + Plum Galette combines two stone fruits that honestly, make us swoon. And if making the pie dough just seems like a harder task than what you want… Read More

Essential Tools for Making Pie

posted on June 19th, 2018 by Kim Kaczor-Wardlow

Whenever I think of peach season, I reminisce about a farm we used to visit up in Acton to pick fresh, sweet peaches. Naturally, we would go home with our peaches and have a pie baking celebration. I just love making peach pies this time of year. If you've ever made a pie, you know that having the right tools can mean great success or saddened failure for your pie. Luckily, for my fellow peach pie-loving customers, I brought in a whole slew of fantastic pie-making tools from Harold Imports to make pie baking a breeze! These gadgets make the entire process of prepping, baking, serving, and maintaining freshness so much easier and more efficient. Here are a few of our best-loved products for the craft that is pie-making: Pastry Blender - Mrs. Anderson's Bakery Pastry Blenders are made of stainless steel, are strong and durable for even heavy dough, and can quickly and easily incorporate butter into your dry ingredients. It's the right tool to begin your pie-making process. Pie… Read More
