Juicy Peaches at a Sweet Price!

It's hard to believe that all the kids are heading back to school and fall is just around the corner! Here at Eckert's, "back to school" also translates to "the last of peach season." Although we always hate to see peach season come to an end, our dismay is somewhat alleviated since the last of our peaches are the Crest Havens, our juiciest, largest, prize-winning peaches! Help us celebrate the ending to a terrific peach season and the beginning of a new school year with the "Sale of the Season!" Pick-Your-Own peaches and loose peaches for sale in the Country Store are now only $.99/lb from now until the end of peach season! We invite you to join us this weekend a day of fun in the sun - enjoying juicy peaches at a sweet price!

Here is one of my favorite peach recipes to make with the kids! It's a great recipe to end the season with, and gives them a little taste of the summer for that first day in the cafeteria!

Lunchbox Peach Crisps
10 medium peaches, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup flour

Crumb Topping
2 1/2 cups flour
1 2/3 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/4 cup oats
1 1/4 cup chilled butter, cut into pieces

Combine ingredients in a large bowl and stir well. Divide peach mixture evenly between greased 4" pie pans or ramekins.

For crumb topping: Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blending tool until crumbly. Divide topping evenly between dishes. Place dishes on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until evenly browned.
