A Taste of Home Recipes

With seasonal produce favorites like radishes, sugar snap peas and purple sprouting broccoli, plus our signature chicken stock and housemade apricot jam, this week’s lineup not only delivers the freshest flavors of spring, but also includes an exciting new taste of home: Small-batch, locally-grown and milled flour from right here in the Pacific Northwest. Have fun experimenting in the kitchen with this stone-ground, heirloom wheat flour, and also enjoy fresh pumpernickel bread, micro-green sunflower shoots and beautiful Shiitake mushrooms, all to help you enjoy the best the Northwest has to offer.

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
