Peach Salsa with Raw Veggie Crackers

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.

    Hi: I’ve starting reading your blog and I made your basic raw cracker which is absolutely amazing! I substituted some of the sesame seeds with black organic sesame and it turned out fantastic! A question about these veggie crackers, do you peel the zucchinis? I’m going to try a batch without peeling and see what happens. Thank you!

    • Susan wrote on May 14, 2015

      I do not peel the zucchini. There are great nutrients in the skin! That said, you will want to make sure you use organic if you are using the skins. Cheers!

    Please see the FYI section on dehydration and ovens. Cheers!

    Hi there, this sounds like an amazing recipe and I really fancy trying the crackers as I always crave something dry and crunchy after a lot of fruit, but I have a question. What is Braggs Liquid Aminos, I have never heard of or seen this before and from a quick google it looks like some sort of engine fluid… Is it necessary for the recipe? Could it be replaced with something else as I don’t think I could get this anywhere where I live.


    • Susan wrote on November 3, 2014

      Hi, Hannah, I can assure you we don’t use engine fluid in any of our recipes. :-) You can read all about Braggs here: or just use tamari or a small amount of soy sauce. If you are in the states you can find them at health food stores, whole foods and even some main stream grocery stores.

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

      I have the same problem – no dehydrator. Would like the same answer you gave this lady. Many thanks.\

    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.

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

    • Susan wrote on September 29, 2013

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

    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?

  8. JEremiah wrote on September 25, 2013

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

    • Susan wrote on September 25, 2013

      Add it to the recipe. :-)

    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.
