What’s In The Box? January 25 – February 1

Weekend Brunch
Rise and shine! Gather round the table this weekend and rid yourself of the rainy day blues with a satisfying brunch starring a buttery galette tart topped with tender and flaky Lummi Island wild smoked salmon and silky crème fraîche. Complemented by breakfast-ready ingredients such as Challah bread, bourbon-spiked apple jam and farm-fresh eggs, this week’s box also includes Cara Cara oranges, Delicata squash and Cremini mushrooms—so pour yourself a cup of joe and get to cookin’.

Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:

Lummi Island Wild Smoked Salmon

Tender and perfectly flaky, this top-quality salmon fished fresh from the Fraser River retains its lovely moisture thanks to a low-salt recipe and light alder smoke. Try it this week atop a freshly-baked breakfast galette tart with crème fraîche—see the enclosed cards for the recipe!

Galette Dough

Crafted from all-purpose flour and organic butter, this housemade pastry dough adapted from a beloved Alice Waters recipe bakes up light and crisp, with a smooth buttery taste that pairs well with both sweet and savory preparations.

Valdo Brut Prosecco DOC

This playful Italian Prosecco is a beautiful straw yellow color and is well-balanced in structure. Matched by a flavorful and aromatic fruity fragrance, these qualities make it a perfect pairing to starters, delicately flavored dishes and especially to seafood.

Challah Bread

Baked just for us by our favorite bakery in Snohomish, this fresh loaf boasts a sweet, rich flavor thanks to a traditional base of silky eggs and Shepherd’s Grain flour, plus a touch of sugar.

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.

Crème Fraîche

Crafted in our farmstead creamery from pasteurized organic sweet cream, our rich and silky crème fraîche adds a beautiful finishing touch to this week’s breakfast tart.

Bourboned Pink Pearl Apple Jam

Crafted with gorgeous Pink Pearl apples from Waldron Island, this beautiful, bright-ruby red jam from Orcas Island-based Girl Meets Girl is also made from organic cane sugar, organic lemon juice and a healthy splash of Maker’s Mark bourbon. It is absolutely delicious on a grown-up PB&J, Challah bread toast or eaten straight off the spoon!

Fresh Fruit

Juicy Cara Cara oranges, Lady apples, lemons and pomegranate seeds.

Seasonal Organic Greens

Juicy Cara Cara oranges, Lady apples, lemons and pomegranate seeds.

Seasonal Organic Vegetables

This week’s produce selection includes Delicata squash, Lacinato kale and curly kale, sweet yellow onions, carrots, Yukon Gold potatoes and Cremini mushrooms.

Fresh Garden Herbs
