Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:
White Bean Soup
Flavorful Italian pancetta and hearty white beans pair beautifully in this soul-soothing soup, crafted in our farmhouse kitchen with garlic, onions, Bella Luna chicken stock and fresh herbs. Serve with chopped herbs as garnish and a side salad of winter greens!
Baked just for us by our favorite bakery in Snohomish, this beautiful loaf boasts a sweet, rich flavor thanks to a traditional base of silky eggs, Shepherd’s Grain flour and a touch of sugar.
J.Laurens Brut Crémant de Limoux
Cheers! This sparkling Brut-style wine from France is perfect for your holiday get-togethers as it exudes full-flavored citrus notes and a light, cardamom-like spice.
Westward Blue Cheese
This gorgeous, marbled soft cheese lends flavorful kick to a salad of winter greens—see this week’s recipes for one of our seasonal favorites, made with arugula, crisp apple slices and toasted pecans.
Farm Fresh Eggs
Our small flock of heritage breed laying hens are on an early-to-bed, later-to-rise schedule with the shorter daylight hours. As they spend more time snug in their coop, the “girls” are enjoying an extra helping of grain to supplement their diet, continuing to give us fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown, blue and green.
Herb Compound Butter
Creamy butter flecked with fresh parsley and shallots.
Made here at Bella Luna in our farmhouse kitchen from fresh-picked blueberries, organic cane sugar and pectin.
Lady apples, Cara Cara oranges and key limes picked from the Bella Luna tree.
Seasonal Organic Vegetables
This week’s produce selection also includes red-cored Chantenay carrots, Delicata squash, yellow onions, Lacinato kale, Romanesco cauliflower and baby red potatoes.
Seasonal Organic Greens
A hearty mix of winter greens for braising.
Fresh Garden Herbs
Italian parsley, thyme, sage, and garlic.
Seattle Chocolates Candy Cane Crunch Chocolate Bar
This refreshingly minty bar from local chocolatier Seattle Chocolates combines rich dark chocolate truffle with candy cane crunch chips to create a fun, seasonal treat.
