Father’s Day Cookout
Fire up the barbecue and gather round to celebrate dear old dad this week with a summery menu highlighted by our smoky baked beans and house-blend dry grill rub, plus flavorful, all-natural bratwurst sausages to throw on the grill. These American classics are also accented by a bevy of fresh produce like rainbow Swiss chard, purple scallions and summer squash, plus a fresh-baked baguette and all the ingredients for a summery strawberry shortcake dessert. To Dad!
Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:
Skagit River Ranch Bratwurst
The pampered pigs raised on this farm in Sedro-Woolley roam outdoors in certified organic pastureland to root, dig, and cavort, thriving on a diet of flaxseed, corn and wheat. Make these flavorful, all-natural pork sausages the star of your Father’s Day feast by serving them hot off the grill.
House-Blend Dry Grill Rub
Made with a mixture of savory spices including garlic, thyme and smoked sea salt, our house-blend is excellent rubbed on chicken, beef, fish and even seasonal vegetables—think peppers, onions or corn!
Housemade BBQ Beans
Our take on the American classic, these slow-simmered beans are flavored with pork belly, mustard and just a touch of brown sugar.
Pain au Levain Baguette
This slightly-nutty, slightly-sweet sourdough baguette epitomizes French country-style baking with a chewy crust and light, airy interior. Baked by our favorite bakery in Snohomish, this traditional Pain au Levain is crafted using the bakery’s own sourdough starter.
Fremont Brewing Interurban India Pale Ale
Named after Fremont’s most famous outdoor sculpture, the Interurban India Pale Ale offers Northwest Pale malt swirled with a hand-selected blend of Chinook, Centennial, and Amarillo hops.
Farm Fresh Eggs
Busy scratching through the straw mulch in their spacious outdoor run looking for tasty bugs and worms, our heritage breed laying hens supply us with fresh eggs in beautiful shades of blue, green and brown.
Crafted in our farmstead creamery from pasteurized organic sweet cream, our rich and silky crème fraîche is the perfect finishing touch to strawberry shortcake!
Cream Shortcake Mix
Just add cream! Made from organic flour, sugar and sweet butter, plus aluminum-free baking powder and a dash of sea salt, our housemade shortcake mix bakes up crumbly and moist, yet light and airy.
Summer is calling: The first local strawberries have arrived! Tender and ripe, these local beauties are best enjoyed right away, so we recommend trying them in this week’s recipe for strawberry shortcake.
Seasonal Organic Greens
Escarole, spicy microgreens and mini red Romaine lettuce.
Seasonal Organic Vegetables & Fruit
This week’s produce selection also includes rainbow Swiss chard, baby red potatoes, micro pea tendrils, baby fennel, Hakurei turnips, summer squash, sweet yellow onions and purple scallions.
Fresh Garden Herbs
Parsley, thyme, rosemary, sage blossoms and green garlic from the walled garden and greenhouse at Bella Luna Farms.
