The time is ripe—for just about everything! From broccolini, beets and French breakfast radishes to Rainier cherries, sugar snap peas and a host of beautiful herbs and greens, this week’s box is a display of early summer splendor. The refreshing lineup of produce is also complemented by such salad-ready provisions as Italian Corona beans, imported orzo pasta, edible blooms and sun-dried tomato-kissed Pomodoro bread, as well Cherry Valley Dairy butter and a fleur de sel chocolate bar to end things on a sweet note. Enjoy!
Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:
Rustichella D’Abruzzo Orzo Pasta
With its petite, rice-like shape, this imported pasta from Italy pairs beautifully with an array of summer produce.
Italian Corona Beans
These popular, oversized beans from the Piedmont region of Italy possess a beautifully-creamy texture, lending themselves well to a room temperature salad crafted with orzo and fresh, seasonal produce—see recipes for details!
Fresh, seasonal Rainier cherries are here!
This refreshing French Rosé is crafted from a medley of Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvedre grapes which give the wine a very fine nose dominated by hints of strawberry, pink grapefruit cherry.
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 cream, beige and brown.
Cherry Valley Dairy Cultured Butter
with Gray Sea Salt
This silky-smooth butter from Duvall-based Cherry Valley Dairy combines sweet, grassy butter with artisan gray sea salt for a flavor profile that wows.
Seasonal Organic Greens
Cegolaine and Little Gem lettuces, Swiss chard, arugula, Lacinato kale and basil microgreens.
Seasonal Organic Vegetables & Fruit
This week’s produce selection also includes Walla Walla sweet onions, broccolini, beets, French breakfast radishes, round summer squash and sugar snap peas.
Fresh Garden Herbs
Thyme, rosemary, sage, peppermint, oregano, cilantro, Italian parsley and chives from the walled garden and greenhouse at Bella Luna Farms.
Bright, cheery edible flowers to add color and spice to your salads.
