Journeys of Discovery: Roadside Texas peach stand creates zesty cooking sauce

It all started with a peach orchard planted in 1928 with an adjacent roadside fruit stand in Fredericksburg, Texas. Today, in addition to fresh peaches available at the fruitstand, Fischer & Wieser Specialty Foods cooking sauces are distributed nationwide. 

The family run business includes a popular Culinary Adventure Cooking School, and a retail shop featuring more than 150 different products. Come along and join Deanna Fischer for the rest of the story, including the tale of the ever-burgeoning line of cooking sauces that evolved from their Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce.

This show was originally broadcast January 5, 2018 and is reposted as a “best-of-the-best” podcast in celebration of Journeys of Discovery’s 30th anniversary producing on-air and digital media podcasts featured on KCBX and NPR One.
