What’s In The Box? June 2-8

Happy & Healthy
As we greet June, we all have our fingers crossed for a warmer (and sunnier!) month ahead, don’t we? But despite any lingering June gloom, this week’s box at least is off to a bright and happy start with such favorites as rich and buttery King salmon, locally foraged Morel mushrooms, Pain au Levain bread and creamy chevre from Lost Peacock Farm. In addition to our farm-fresh eggs and garden herbs, this week’s lineup also awaits with such produce all-stars as asparagus, red spring onions and a beautiful mix of salad greens. Enjoy!

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

Lummi Island Wild King Salmon

Also known as Chinook, Tyee, or Blackmouth salmon, King salmon are prized for their high oil content, firm texture, and rich flavor. Wild-caught locally by Salish Sea fishers, these wild king salmon portions have a rich and buttery flavor with soft-textured flakes and a velvety finish.

Locally Foraged Morel Mushrooms

These seasonal mushrooms are only available in the wild, developing a cult following of local ‘mushroom hunters’ who roam our forests looking for this treat of nature. Woodsy and earthy, yet delicate and rich, they are excellent incorporated into your favorite recipes, or simply sautéed in butter or olive oil and enjoyed on their own!

Pain au Levain Bread

This slightly-nutty, slightly-sweet sourdough loaf 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.

Poggio Anima Samael Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

The Montepulciano grapes in this ruby-hued wine come from a single organically farmed vineyard in Chieti, Italy, that is located less than half a mile from the Adriatic Sea. With notes of smoky black plum, earth and brown sugar on the nose, along with hints of blackberry liqueur and mint, it has a lingering acidity and finishes strong with pronounced tannins.

Farm Fresh Eggs

As they spend more time outdoors in their run, our small flock of heritage breed laying hens are enjoying succulent popweed pulled from the gardens along with an extra helping of grain to supplement their diet, continuing to give us fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown, beige and cream.

Lost Peacock Creamery Chevre

Soft and spreadable, this lightly creamy chevre from the Grade-A Lost Peacock goat dairy in Olympia, Washington is a simply beautiful farmstead cheese. Crafted with just goat’s milk and sea salt, it features notes of summer pasture and bright lemon.

Fresh Organic Greens

Pea shoots, salad mix and buckwheat microgreens.

Seasonal Organic Fruit & Vegetables

This week’s produce selection also includes red spring onions, red radishes, mixed salad turnips and asparagus, plus Meyer lemons.

Fresh Garden Herbs

Fragrant, herbaceous dill and mint from the herb gardens at Bella Luna.

Dick Taylor Vanilla Raspberry Chocolate Bar

Made ‘bean-to-bar’ in Dick Taylor’s small Northern California factory, this dark chocolate bar is kissed with a mix of organic, freeze-dried raspberries and organic vanilla-coconut palm sugar.
