What’s In The Box? February 22-28

Taco Time
Spice things up with this week’s taco-themed box, which comes complete with Skagit River Ranch’s signature chorizo sausage and organic, locally-crafted whole wheat tortillas. Top your tacos with some chopped yellow onion, fresh microgreens, a few cilantro springs and a squeeze of Makrut lime—plus a spoonful of locally-made chunky salsa—and you’ve got all the makings of a Southwestern-style feast. Also included: Sliced multigrain bread, corn muffins, farm-fresh eggs, our signature beef stock, housemade potato chips, Cara Cara oranges and smoky-sweet Guajillo chili powder. Enjoy!

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

Skagit River Ranch Chorizo Sausage

This pig has kick: Spiced with cumin, coriander and Ancho chili powder, these flavorful sausage links from our friends at the Skagit River Ranch in Sedro-Woolley are crafted from their famous all-natural pork and make for a spicy addition to any Tex-Mex fare you choose, from tacos to frittatas!

Tortillas Con Madre Flour Tortillas

Crafted from just five simple ingredients—organic artisan wheat flour, water, organic pumpkin oil, sea salt, and non-aluminum baking powder—these lovely tortillas are made with love according to a treasured recipe by a small, family-run producer based in Lynden, Washington.

Skagit’s Best Salsa Company Medium-Ish Salsa

Hailing from Anacortes, this locally-crafted chunky salsa is full of ripe tomatoes, fresh cilantro, crisp onions, zesty peppers, garlic, lime juice and flavorful spices. (The “ish” in the name refers to the heat of the jalapeños, which vary in spiciness depending on the time of year!)

Multigrain Bread & Corn Muffins

Both baked in nearby Snohomish by our favorite bakery, this week’s selection includes a healthy freshly-baked loaf made with locally-milled Shepherd’s Grain flour and seven different whole grains, plus a hint of honey and toasted sunflower seeds, as well as light and fluffy corn muffins! (Just add honey!)

J. Mourat Collection Vin de France Rosé

Comprising vineyards spanning 120 hectares, Vignobles Mourat represents one of the largest viticultural plots dedicated to organic agriculture in the Loire Valley. Made from Pinot Noir, Gamay, and Cab Franc, this bright and thirst quenching Rosé is bursting with aromas of crushed cherry, watermelon and herb. It is fleshy on the palate with intense flavors of cherry and raspberry.

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.

Fresh Buttermilk

Beautifully-thick, tangy and creamy buttermilk made by our in-house creamery, Bellsong.

Hayshaker Farms Guajillo Chili Powder

One of the most popular and common peppers found in Mexican cuisine, Guajillo chiles offer a mild-medium heat that is balanced by a subtly-sweet flavor. Grown on Hayshaker Farms in the Walla Walla Valley and then dried and ground, the peppers in this powder will impart tons of flavor (but not the burn!) to your chosen recipe.

Beef Stock

Our signature handcrafted beef stock is slow-simmered for hours, and seasoned with fresh herbs, cracked peppers and a smattering of sea salt.

Handcrafted Potato Chips

Freshly made in our farmhouse kitchen using local fingerling potatoes fermented for two weeks for a slightly tangy flavor, then fried in sunflower oil and lightly salted.

Seasonal Organic Greens

Kale, Swiss chard, baby spinach and a beautiful mix of microgreens.

Seasonal Citrus Fruit

Cara Cara oranges and Makrut limes.

Seasonal Organic Produce

This week’s produce selection also includes yellow onions, carrots, English cucumbers and Anaheim peppers.

Fresh Garden Herbs

Garlic and cilantro from the walled garden and hoophouse at Bella Luna Farms.
