Baking Spirits Bright
‘Tis the season—to bake! This week’s box embraces the beloved holiday pastime with an array of provisions to help you whip up some of your favorite seasonal treats, featuring such all-star ingredients as organic all-purpose flour, extra-dark chocolate baking chips, marzipan paste, Northwest-grown hazelnuts and a warming spice mix. Also including farm-fresh eggs, fromage blanc from our in-house creamery and multigrain bread, plus a host of fresh produce like Black Futsu squash, fingerling potatoes, leeks, and hearty radicchio greens, as well as fragrant herbs, this delivery has things looking very merry and bright, indeed.

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

Guittard Extra-Dark Chocolate Baking Chips

Made with 63-percent cacao, extra dark, extra intense dark chocolate chips also boast subtle notes of vanilla.

Organic Silician Marzipan

This sweet confectionery paste imported by Ritrovo Selections is made from ground almonds and sugar. Its texture is smooth and pliable, making it easy to mold into whatever seasonal figure or shape you please!

La Boîte Spice Mix

It’s the warm, familiar flavors of gingerbread in a jar! This beautiful spice mix features the homey flavors of cinnamon, honey, and star anise to lend spicy-sweet depth both to desserts and the likes of caramelized vegetables.

Fairhaven Mill Organic All-Purpose Flour

Nestled in the Skagit Valley, this family and farmer-owned certified-organic flour mill sources their grains from family farms across the country, guaranteeing freshness and quality from tilth to table. Milled from a choice blend of hard red wheat, this versatile all-purpose is formulated to be a perfect building block base for both at-home and artisan bakers.

Multigrain Bread

Crafted in nearby Snohomish by our favorite bakery, this healthy freshly-baked loaf is made with locally-milled Shepherd’s Grain flour and seven different whole grains, plus a hint of honey and toasted sunflower seeds.

Kind Stranger 2022 Rosé

This dry, direct-to-press rosé from Washington’s Wahluke Slope is fruit-forward with a crisp, bright finish. A Provencal style rosé composed of Grenache, Mourvedre, and Cinsault grapes, it is made by Ohio native Andrew Latta, with proceeds benefiting Mary’s Place in Seattle.

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, and continue to give us fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown, beige and cream.

Fromage Blanc

Also crafted in our own in-house creamery, this beautiful fromage blanc cheese is made from locally-sourced milk. Wonderfully-creamy and just slightly tangy cheese, it can be used in place of ricotta or mascarpone in recipes.

Organic Hazelnuts

Also known as filberts, these delicious, crunchy Northwest-grown nuts make for a wonderful addition to your holiday baking!

Seasonal Organic Greens

Treviso radicchio and sunflower shoots.

Seasonal Organic Fruit & Vegetables

This week’s produce selection also includes leeks, Black Futsu winter squash, Russian Banana fingerling potatoes, yellow onions, carrots, plus a mix of Arkansas Beauty and Liberty apples, D’Anjou pears, lemons and oranges.
