What’s In The Box? March 14-20

St. Patrick’s Day Feast
Just in time for St. Paddy’s Day, this week’s box bursts to life with beautiful spring ‘greenery’—from fresh green cabbage to garden-grown parsley and bay leaf. Complementing this bounty are all the ingredients for a feast inspired by the Emerald Isle: Pre-brined corned beef and raisin-flecked Irish soda bread, plus chicken stock, tangy Bellsong buttermilk, stone-ground mustard, chocolate stout cake and other produce such as carrots, potatoes, turnips, apples and more. As they say in Ireland, sláinte (to your good health)!

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

Corned Beef Brisket

This all-natural, grain-fed corned beef brisket has been pre-seasoned and brined so that it arrives oven-ready for your feast!

Irish Soda Bread

Baked in nearby Snohomish by our favorite bakery, this beloved quick bread is crafted in the traditional style with buttermilk, flour, sugar, raisins, and egg.

Stone-Ground Mustard

Crafted in-house from mustard seeds, water, vinegar, salt and spices, this immensely-flavorful wholegrain mustard is wonderful served with this week’s corned beef and bevy of vegetables.

Boundary Bay Irish Red Ale

This easy-drinking seasonal ale from Boundary Brewery out of Bellingham highlights the arrival of spring with earthy, floral and toffee-like characteristics. A light-body, low hop bitterness and clean malty finish also help this ale go down smooth.

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.

Farm & Larder Chicken Stock

Made from roasted Bella Luna chickens, this flavorful stock has been simmered slowly with fresh herbs, aromatic vegetables, and seasoned with a dash of sea salt and black pepper.

Almond Fruit Crisp Topping

Wonderful paired with this week’s apples, our signature fruit crisp topping is crafted from organic cane sugar, ground almonds, dried cranberries, almond flour and sweet butter.

Seasonal Fruit

Orchard apples and fresh lemons.

Seasonal Organic Greens

Beautiful green cabbage, plus both red and green endive.

Seasonal Organic Produce

This week’s produce selection also includes carrots, French fingerling potatoes, Cipollini onions and turnips.

Fresh Garden Herbs

Garlic, fresh bay leaf and parsley from the walled garden and hoophouse at Bella Luna Farms.

Chocolate Stout Cake

Kissed with malty stout, this rich, fudgy chocolate cake is a delicious way to wrap up your St. Patty’s Day!
