This weekend we headed out to Schnepf Farms in Queen Creek, Arizona for their peach festival. We didn't really partake in much of the festival as it was HOT and we mostly just went to take the kids on the hay ride and pick our own peaches! We picked 5 lbs. of organic peaches. Hudson seemed scared to pick them himself so, I held him and we picked together. I am not usually a peachy kind of gal but, this weekend I made a delicious peach crisp and 7 jars of homemade organic raspberry peach jam. That got me feeling just peachy!
This peach crisp was a very easy dessert made with wholesome pecans, granola and oats for the topping. I served it warm with vanilla ice cream. See peach crisp recipe.
This flavorful jam is wonderful on toast, pancakes or waffles and with desserts. Here's an easy tip I found for peeling peaches - boil water; put peaches in boiling water for 20-30 seconds; transfer to cold water and then easily remove the peel. See raspberry peach jam recipe.
