Fredericksburg Golden Peach Pie

You can trust Fischer & Wieser with peaches—that’s how we got our start. So it’s only natural that we’d come up with a peach pie filling that’ll have your guests holding their dessert plates out for more!  And all you have to do is pour and bake!

Prep Time:  10 minutes
Bake Time:  35-45 minutes

Preheat oven to 400° F. Remove crusts from freezer. Fill bottom crust with Fischer & Wieser Fredericksburg Golden Peach Pie Filling and loosen edge of crust from pan. Remove second crust from pan. Invert and thaw 10-20 minutes until flat. Moisten edges of bottom crust with water. Place top crust over filling. Tuck edge of top crust under edge of bottom crust. Crimp to seal edges well. Cut several slits in top crust to allow steam to escape during baking. To prevent edges from burning, place foil around outside edge of crust. Bake on cookie sheet near center of oven for 35-45 minutes or until filling is done and crust is golden brown. 6 – 8 servings.

Rich Peach-Glazed Salmon

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 12 minutes

This recipe comes to us from “The Chile Doctor,” who has generously allowed us to post it on our website. His kind words appear below:

This recipe uses your outstanding Jalapeno Peach Preserves , and it really makes the salmon taste great (in my opinion).  I’m not a fan of salmon, but this had me cleaning my plate and wishing it was polite to lick it…
If you’re a fan of salmon, then you know its rich taste can stand up to stronger flavors in the sauce than, say, trout. Here’s a zesty treat for you then!

  • 4 salmon steaks, 6 ounces each
  • ½ cup Fischer & Wieser Jalapeno Peach Preserves
  • 1 teaspoon light soy sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika or cayenne pepper
  • ⅛-¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 large colored bell peppers, seeded, thinly sliced into strips
  • 1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced into strips
  • 1 tablespoon light olive oil
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Prepare broiler or grill for medium-high, direct heat. Place salmon on nonstick foil or non-stick spray coated broiler sheet. Blend Fischer & Wieser Jalapeno Peach Preserves, soy, paprika and ginger in a small bowl, then brush liberally on fish. Place vegetable strips around fish, spreading out so they’ll cook well; brush veggies with oil and then season. Grill fish about 5 inches from heat for 10-12 minutes, or until it begins to flake with a fork. About half-way through, turn the veggies over and brush the fish again with more glaze. Serve with tossed salad, rice and a nice Liebfraumilch for a complete and healthy meal.

Got some other vegetable you prefer over peppers and onions? Go right ahead! Just be sure not to use something that takes longer than 10-15 minutes to cook; like say, baked potatoes. Fix them separately. Serves 4.

Brandied Jalapeno Peach Pork Chops

If you’re looking for a presentation with pizazz, look no further than this recipe! Succulent and juicy pork chops with a dramatically prepared brandy-jalapeño peach flambé sauce can’t fail to impress your guests—and, it’s not difficult! #1 rule of truly great chefs:  “If you’re going to do it, do it with flair!”

Prep Time/Cook Time:  20-25 minutes

  • 4 (1-inch thick) pork loin chops
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced shallots
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped thyme
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon brandy, divided
  • 1 (10-ounce) bag frozen peaches, thawed (or fresh in season)
  • 1/3 cup Fischer & Wieser Jalapeño Peach Preserves

Rinse chops and pat dry; sprinkle with salt and pepper as desired. Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium heat until it shimmers. Cook pork chops, turning once, until browned and just cooked through, or until meat thermometer inserted in thickest part reads 145° F. for 15 seconds, 10-12 minutes total. Transfer to a warm platter, loosely covered with foil. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon fat from skillet.

Heat butter in skillet over medium heat until foam dies down. Cook shallots with thyme, stirring occasionally, until tender and golden-brown, about 5 minutes.

Add 1/4 cup brandy to skillet and carefully ignite with a kitchen match (use caution; flames will shoot up). Cook over medium heat, scraping bottom of skillet to loosen brown bits. When flames subside, add peaches, Fischer & Wieser Jalapeño Peach Preserves, and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper and simmer, covered, until peaches are tender and juicy, about 3 minutes. Stir in remaining tablespoon brandy, any meat juices from platter, and salt and pepper to taste. Spoon sauce over chops. Serves 4.

Mexican Crema Fresca Peach Dessert

This simple, yet sinfully delicious “comfort food” was a childhood favorite of the company’s founder, Mark Wieser. His mother always made fresh peach preserves from the family orchard and often served this dessert, which the family enjoyed with coffee after dinner.

Prep Time:  5 minutes
Cook Time:  15 minutes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread the bread cubes out in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake the cubes for 10 minutes, or until slightly dried. While cubes are baking, empty the preserves into a 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat just until the preserves have melted, about 5 minutes; set aside. Remove pan from oven and transfer the bread cubes to a 9″ x 13″ baking dish. Pour the hot preserves over the bread cubes, distributing well over all of the bread. Stir to coat bread well. Set aside until preserves have cooled to room temperature. Pour the Crema Fresca over the top of the bread cubes and serve, spooning the dessert into individual bowls. Serves 8 – 10.
