• Blueberry Peach Sangria

    Blueberry Peach Sangria

    B.C.-grown peaches are only available for a few short months. But, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy peaches year 'round! When winter sets in, and we're wishing summer would come sooner than later, we like to whip up a pitcher of our famous Blueberry Peach Sangria. It tastes just like summer!

    The recipe calls for peaches, but you can easily make it without. Or, add a few frozen peaches into the mix instead! Here's the recipe: 


    Yield: One Pitcher | Total Time: 5 Minutes 


    • 2 Peaches sliced (frozen works, too!)
    • 1 Cup blueberries (fresh or frozen) 
    • 1 Bottle Steve & Dan's Sparkling Peach Juice 
    • 1/3 Cup peach schnapps 
    • 1 Bottle white wine (or club soda for virgin sangria) 


    • Mix all ingredients together in a large pitcher. 
    • Let it sit for 2 hours. 
    • Serve with ice (or more frozen fruit) and enjoy!

    5 Healthy Halloween Snack Ideas

    Ahhh, Halloween. While it's not really a holiday, it's a favourite among kids for one main reason: candy. Monitoring what your neighbours are handing out to trick-or-treaters is a little challenging, but if you're hosting a Halloween party for you and your family, it's much easier to limit the amount of sugar guests (and your kids) are consuming.

    Instead of filling mixing bowls with chips, Tootsie Rolls, and M&M's, try making one (or all) these healthy Halloween snacks: 

    Fruit Leather Apple Spiders

    No bake, no problem! This fast and easy snack only requires four ingredients: apples, fruit leather, almond butter (peanut butter would work, too), and chocolate chips (or raisins). Next time you're picking up apples at the market, pick up some of our fruit leather for this recipe! 

    Apple Peanut Butter Teeth

    Another apple-based recipe for Halloween! These apple peanut butter teeth are even easier to make than the recipe above. Cut apples, slather them with peanut butter, and strategically place mini-marshmallows between the slices for teeth. You can also use yogurt-covered raisins/cranberries instead of the marshmallows!

    Fresh Fruit Halloween Cups

    The easiest recipe of them all! These fruit cups require assembly and a little creativity. Place different types of fruit, preferably green grapes, into small, clear, plastic cups. Then, use your imagination and draw on faces! 

    Banana Mummies

    Sweet, filling, and healthy! This recipe is for chocolate-loving kids - the bananas are drizzled with both white and milk chocolate. Make sure you leave yourself enough time for this recipe as it can't be whipped up in a few minutes! The bananas need to be frozen prior to assembly. 

    Graveyard Candy Apples

    A spin-off from the traditional candy apple, this spooky recipe calls for apples, white and dark chocolate, potato chips (yup), nuts, M&M's, and edible candy eyes. You can pretty much use whatever you like to decorate and spice this apple, though! 

    Are there any healthy Halloween treats you like to make for your family at this time of year?

    Autumn is here! The leaves are bright red, orange, and yellow; the weather is cooler; the apples on our orchard are ready for pickin', and Thanksgiving is less than one week away. As we wrap up the outdoor market season, we've been thinking more about what dishes we'll be cooking this weekend.
