For 30 years, Cheri Swoboda, otherwise known as Mother Peach, has been crafting small batches of rich, buttery caramels. After years of perfecting her recipe, Cheri founded Mother Peach Caramels to share her homemade treats. As a writer for the Oregonian FOODday for 25 years, Cheri frequently looked to OSU Extension family and consumer science projects as a resource. Cheri stays connected to Oregon State through donations of her caramels for various university events.
