In keeping with the warm, soulful flavors of classic Oktoberfest, this week’s lineup takes a trip to Bavaria with favorites such as smoky bratwurst links, wholegrain mustard and our housemade tangy sauerkraut. Complemented by an array of fall all-stars like Delicata squash, Hakurei turnips, leeks and rainbow carrots to incorporate into comforting side dishes, this box also includes red Pimento peppers, roasted pecans and our signature cornichons, plus Honeycrisp apples and our accompanying apple cake mix to bake up a fitting dessert for this cozy and comforting feast—prost!
