What’s In The Box? November 15-21

Holiday Accoutrements
It’s almost turkey time—allow us to lend a helping hand with the big meal next week thanks to a beautiful assortment of housemade accoutrements like our savory mushroom duxelles, silky crème fraîche and buttery galette dough, plus seasonal produce including pearl onions, fingerling potatoes and Winter Luxury pumpkin. Also included: VIP provisions to incorporate into the day’s most classic dishes, from a turkey brining kit and turkey stock to housemade cranberry sauce. Here’s to a happy holiday—and satisfied stomachs, too!

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

Turkey Brining Kit

Our signature dry-brine mixture is crafted from fresh farm herbs, kosher salt and aromatic spices. See this week’s recipes for full instructions on this simple and easy way to produce an incredibly juicy turkey.

F&L Turkey Stock

The key to rich, flavorful gravy? Incredible stock, of course! Crafted from roasted turkeys, our intensely-flavorful housemade broth is simmered slowly for hours with carrots, onions, parsley and celery and seasoned with a dash of sea salt and cracked black pepper.

Housemade Duxelles

Wild mushrooms shine in this finely chopped mixture of shallots and herbs sautéed in butter and wine. Try this lovely blend added into traditional gravy, tossed with roasted vegetables or stirred into our favorite rustic mashed potatoes (see recipes for details!).

Challah Bread

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

Bruno Soria Cascina del Santuario Moscato d’Asti

Made by a family-run wine producing firm in Castiglione Tinella, a small village in Piedmont, Italy, this sparkling wine is crafted from hand-cropped Moscato d’Asti grapes. With a full harmonic flavor thanks to hints of yellow peach and grapefruit, it is sweet, yet slightly savory, pairing nicely with your Thanksgiving meal.

Farm Fresh Eggs

As they spend more time snug in their coop, our heritage breed laying hens 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 mashed potatoes.

Galette Dough

Crafted from organic ingredients including all-purpose flour, sugar 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 savory and sweet applications.

Housemade Cranberry Sauce

Tart-sweet cranberries infused with Cabernet wine and orange zest.

Seasonal Organic Greens

Spinach and escarole.

Seasonal Organic Fruits & Vegetables

This week’s produce selection includes celery, leeks, pearl onions, Winter Luxury pumpkin, broccolini, Savoy cabbage, cauliflower, a potato medley of purple, Ozette and Amarosa fingerling potatoes, plus Hakurei turnips and Bosc pears. Also included: Tender, golden Chanterelle mushrooms.

Fresh Garden Herbs

Fresh Italian parsley, sage and shallots from the walled garden and greenhouse at Bella Luna Farms.
