Peach Contest Winner: Andrea Campbell’s Perfect Peach Panna Cotta

posted on August 13th, 2018 by Alyssa Malmquist

And the winner is....Perfect Peach Panna Cotta via Andrea Campbell Last month, we ran a peach dessert recipe to honor our favorite summer fruit! We had tons of amazingly delicious recipe submissions but when it came to the ultimate recipe and beautifully presented and photographed dessert, we unanimously voted this "perfect peach panna cotta." According to Andrea... "I created this recipe after going to an Italian restaurant with my dad and trying their Panna Cotta. I fell in love with the luscious texture of the dessert, but I wanted it to have more layers to it. I usually make this with either or guava or mango (because of my Jamaican roots), but after seeing this recipe contest, I knew peaches would make the perfect substitute and I was correct. I made a couple modifications (like using bourbon vanilla extract and lemon zest), and I just LOVE the way it turned out. My family loved it and I will definitely be making this dessert again in the near future." Panna Cotta is a… Read More

Peach Tarts Handcrafted for Summer

posted on July 11th, 2018 by Lauren Pepin

Feeling Peachy What’s your favorite summer memory? One of mine is sitting around munching on summer fruit at the beach or by the pool. I love cold fruit on a hot day. Summertime brings about some of the best fruit of the year; cherries, berries, mango, grapes, kiwi, and peaches. Of all the fruits available this season, peaches have to be one of the sweetest fruity treats. The range of flavor from tart to sweet with the varying colors never ceases to amaze me. Is there a more perfect fruit to represent summer? We have 4” and 8” seasonal fruit tarts available all year long, but this summer we are stoked to bring you our 8” Fresh Peach Tart that’s made with the sweetness of both yellow and white peaches layered in a beautiful design you will be proud to serve. [caption id="attachment_19469" align="aligncenter" width="824"] Peach Tart[/caption] We take a vanilla cream filled buttery tart shell and top it with alternating super sweet white and yellow peach slices.

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

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
