What We Bought:
Heather Hoch Preserves, jars and all things peach at Schnepf Farms.
After the peach envy we felt from seeing our friends' peach fest pickin' pics, we decided to head down to Schnepf without the massive crowds and get some of our own. If you want peaches too, get your buns out to Queen Creek and pick the last Schnepf peaches from now until Sunday. At $2/pound, you can either pick your own from the orchard or just grab some at the small shop and bakery. We definitely think picking your own is more fun, but either way you go, it's definitely better quality peaches than the bitter, mealy junk we've been finding at supermarkets lately. Schnepf also has pickable apples ($1/pound) and plums ($2/pound) available right now.
The peach fun doesn't stop there though. In the shop you can get the last of the sweet and tart freshly baked peach pies ($17), peach cobbler jars, peach rhubarb preserves and peach chutney. They also have a wealth of other jarred items--from chile relleno salsa to picoso apple spread, which are all abour $8 or 4 for $25.
