What’s In The Box? June 13-19

JUNE 13-19

Summery Salads
As we approach the summer solstice next week, the gardens are bursting to life with vibrant produce and verdant greens indicative of the coming season. Thus, take in the summer splendor with a delivery that is chockablock with mix-and-match salad ingredients—from the likes of green Bibb lettuce, endive frisée, and a mix of microgreens to build on as a base, to faves such as fresh fava beans, red bunching onions, Meyer lemons, baby golden beets, and peppery nasturtium flowers to add on as you please. Also included: Farm-fresh eggs, Italian Rustica bread, dried plums, and vinaigrette-ready preserved lemons crafted in the farmstead kitchen; whether you’re celebrating Dads or grads this week, we hope you enjoy this plant-powered menu!

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

Fresh Fava Beans

These verdant, seasonal beans do require a bit of prep work (see our how-to guide enclosed with this week’s recipes), but it’s worth the effort—their inherent sweet, nutty flavor enhances everything from pastas to proteins.

Dried Italian Plums

Grown and harvested at Miles Away Farm in Walla, Walla, Washington, these lovely dried Italian plums add luscious, fruity notes to salads; or simply munch away on these little beauties for an afternoon snack!

Italian Rustica Bread

Baked just for us at a small bakery in Snohomish, this airy, rustic loaf makes for great oven-crisp crostini or homemade salad croutons—just brush with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and rub with a fresh-cut clove of garlic before toasting in the oven.

Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

Hailing from the Colchagua Valley of Chile, this red wine boasts notes of raspberry jam, candied fruit and white chocolate, along with spices of black pepper, nutmeg, bay leaves and cloves. Deeply and pleasantly mature with dark cherry, blackberry and plum flavors, it is smooth, round and easy-drinking on the palate.

Farm Fresh Eggs

As they spend more time outdoors in the sunnier weather, 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.

Preserved Lemons

Crafted and jarred in our farmhouse kitchen with fresh lemon juice and sea salt, these beautiful preserved Meyer lemons are a fantastic pairing for spring produce, or try incorporating them into a vinaigrette for salads.

Seasonal Organic Greens

Enjoy a bounty of tender-crisp greens this week: red veined sorrel microgreens, Belgian endive and endive frisée, green Bibb lettuce, and mixed microgreens.

Seasonal Organic Fruit & Produce

This week’s vibrant produce selection also includes red bunching onions, French breakfast radishes, purple sprouting broccoli, and baby golden beets, plus Meyer lemons.

Edible Flowers

A mixture of bright and cheery nasturtium flowers to add color and spice to your salads this week!
