Sometimes good things happen when you are running late! Which we seem to do often here. It’s frustrating because I really like to be on time but it doesn’t always happen. 

Last Saturday, I planned on going to the Farmer’s Market. And it starts. So many things kept getting in the way of my getting out the door. FINALLY, I was able to jump in the car and head to the market. I got there 10 minutes before closing time.

Frustrated, I quickly walked through the booths watching as everyone who hadn’t already packed up was in the process of doing so. I managed to score some beets, bok choy and raw almonds.

I gave up on finding anything more, and headed towards the entry gate. And that’s when I hit the mother load. The organic peach people were trying to sell off their extra peaches. I was offered a beautiful, huge bag of peaches for 5 dollars! There were 2 1/2 dozen peaches in the bag! I didn’t turn that good deal down. I happily handed over my 5 dollar bill and headed home with my score!

The peaches were beautiful but not quite ripe yet. I set half of them on the table by a window and put the other half on a counter, away from the window. The hope was that they would ripen at different times. Having 30 peaches ripen all at the same time could be challenging!

My plan worked and the first batch ripened beautifully. Peaches are my favorite fruit and I knew that I would be eating quite a few of these all by themselves. But with a treasure like this, I also got busy thinking of recipes that I wanted to create. Peach Salsa was at the top of the list.

I love peach salsa and these peaches offered a great opportunity to make up a quick batch. Super simple, and packed with flavor, you can make a double batch, put some in a pretty canning jar and bring it as a hostess gift! I also threw together my favorite, quick and easy raw cracker recipe. It’s super easy, takes very few ingredients and is really tasty! They are a perfect compliment to the salsa.

What a score on the peaches! The salsa looks absolutely fabulous and not too hard to prepare. I can’t wait to make it!

What a great raw recipe that’s delicious and easy! Two of my favorite things! Perfect timing, too, Susan because I have all the ingredients in my fridge and am making today. Perfect end of summer treat for the family. Thank you, Rawmazing! You’ve done it again! P.S. I love the tip about going to late the Farmer’s Market, to get the best deals!

Mmmm peaches really are such a treat! I love that this happened to you .. running late is such a bummer on market days because then all the good stuff is picked over and the vendors pack up towards the end. But THEN you were able to get such a great deal!! I love it. I’ve always wanted to try a peach salsa but I never do because I usually just end up eating the peaches on their own :) But this looks so delicious, especially with the crackers.

This sounds great. I love how refreshing fruit salsas can be. I’ve found that heading to the farmer’s market near closing time can be quite beneficial, just like your score on these peaches! When they need to get rid of the produce, they basically give it away.

So what do you do with the Braggs in this recipe for Veggie crackers?

Susan September 25, 2013 at 9:42 pm

Add it to the recipe. :-)

The peach salsa looks amazing! I’m also going to remember to separate my fruit when I buy in bulk to stagger the ripening. Good tip. Thankyou. How long will the salsa keep for in jar?

This looks beautiful. Your photos always inspire me, Susan.

I’d love to get more into dehydrating…are there any dehydrators you recommend?

Susan September 29, 2013 at 5:20 pm

Thanks, Laura-Jane! You are doing some wonderful work yourself!

These raw veggie crackers are sooo good! I made them this past weekend. I have not had much success with the crackers, but I am getting better at spreading them out thin and even on the teflex. Thank you so much for this wonderful website.

just wondering if this recipe can be done in the oven on a very low heat? I don’t have a dehydrator :(
thanks!
