Much like the autumn leaves bursting into brilliant shades of orange, yellow and scarlet all around us, our gardens are gracing us with a bounty of vibrant, colorful produce, from bright, crisp-tart apples and spicy, peppery greens to orange-fleshed Robin’s Koginut squash and rainbow-hued Watermelon radish. Celebrate the best of the season this week with a warm-and-wonderful risotto made with our flavorful chicken stock and hand-crafted white Chanterelle mushroom ragout, plus Gruyère cheese bread, farm-fresh eggs and a robust red wine—pour a glass, ladle piping-hot risotto into a bowl and head for your favorite easy chair.
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
Risotto with White Chanterelle Mushroom Ragout
Crafted with our own mushroom ragout, this creamy and delicious recipe is a favorite here at the farm.
Fall Kale Salad with Roasted Squash & Apples
Topped with a maple-mustard vinaigrette and candied squash seeds, this salad would pair nicely with this week’s risotto supper.
Candied Squash Seeds
Great for scattering over salad or serving atop soup!
Glazed Hakurei Turnips
These buttery glazed turnips are sure to delight.
Bok Choy with Garlic & Ginger

A wonderfully-easy weeknight entrée!
Rise and shine, it’s breakfast time! Gather round the table this weekend for a hearty and satisfying brunch starring our farm-fresh eggs, Skagit River Ranch’s chorizo sausage and sweet, nutty pancakes crafted from a locally-made whole-grain mix. Complemented by challah bread and a nicely balanced pinot noir, this week’s box also includes Akane apples, sweet peppers, fingerling potatoes and fragrant herbs—so pour yourself a cup of joe and get cookin’.
Here are some recipe ideas for the week:
Emmer Pancake & Waffle Mix
Plan on 1 cup of prepared mix yielding six 4-inch pancakes, or two 8-inch waffles.
These fragrant apples are wonderful served on top of pancakes or waffles.
Try serving this spicy scramble with a dollop of cool crème fraîche on top.
Roasted Potatoes, Peppers & Onions
These easy roasted veggies are a great brunch side dish. (Or, try topping a hearty serving with a poached egg for a satisfying entrée.)
This light and fresh side is accented by tart lemon juice and fresh-cracked pepper.
Sweet Onion Confit
These buttery-sweet onions are fantastic mixed into scrambled eggs!
