Home for the Holidays
‘Tis the season for family and friends to gather around and celebrate the most magical time of year—allow us to lend a helping hand with any soirée you might have planned with a bevy of handmade accoutrements ranging from an earthy cream of mushroom soup and Gruyère cheese bread to nutty granola and our signature spiced cranberry sauce. Also included in this holiday lineup: Farm-fresh eggs, locally-baked gingerbread loaf and seasonal produce like parsnips, Delicata squash and orchard apples. From our family to yours—happy holidays!
Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:
Cream of Mushroom Soup
Earthy and inviting, this soul-soothing soup is slow-simmered in the farmhouse kitchen and crafted from a combination of mushrooms, fragrant herbs, shallots and our homemade chicken stock, plus a splash of white wine and a touch of cream. Serve warm with a sprinkling of fresh herbs!
Gruyère Cheese Bread
Made in nearby Snohomish by our favorite bakery, this freshly-baked loaf balances rich Gruyère cheese with a light, crisp crust. Absolutely delicious toasted or re-warmed in the oven—just sprinkle with a few drops of water and bake at 350° for about 15 minutes.
A true taste of the season, this fragrant spiced gingerbread loaf makes for a perfect afternoon snack alongside some hot cocoa, or served to guests for dessert!
Cluster Wine Co. Lot F Red Blend 2017
A beautiful red blend crafted from grapes grown in the Columbia Valley, this Washington wine boasts a dusty garnet color, fruity and toasty aromas and bright flavors of chocolate and berries.
Farm Fresh Eggs
Our small flock of heritage breed laying hens gives us fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown and green. With the short days of winter, the girls are up with the sun to roam the outdoors. Bedtime is much earlier now, as we see them heading into their house to roost as the sun is going down.
Our granola is hand-crafted in the farmhouse kitchen with toasted pepitas, sunflower seeds, oats and local honey—fantastic served with fruit and Greek yogurt, splashed with cold milk or sprinkled on top pancakes for a delightful crunch.
Spiced Cranberry Sauce
This farmhouse favorite infuses homey, warming spices with sweet-tart cranberries; it is lovely served as a side to a holiday turkey, or spooned over warm Brie cheese as an appetizer.
Seasonal Organic Greens
Rosa di Alba, Sugarloaf and Treviso radicchio.
Seasonal Organic Fruit & Vegetables
This week’s produce selection includes orange carrots, Ozette fingerling potatoes, parsnips, Chioggia beets, Brussels sprouts, Delicata squash, purple Daikon radishes and leeks, plus orchard apples.
Fresh Garden Herbs
Italian parsley and thyme from the walled garden and greenhouse.
