What’s In The Box? March 28-April 3

Spring Delights
Just in time for your Easter weekend gatherings, this week’s lineup sings of spring with bright and fresh ingredients. Starring fixings for a homey, flavorful meal comprised of locally-smoked ham hocks, heirloom dried beans, and corn muffins, this delivery also includes multigrain bread, farm-fresh eggs, our handcrafted chicken stock and an array of fresh produce from the garden—baby golden beets to fragrant garlic and French fingerling potatoes to collard greens. Enjoy!

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

Jack Mountain Smoked Ham Hocks

Carefully trimmed, then brined with an in-house spice blend and rubbed with thyme and garlic, this beautiful ham hock from the Skagit Valley-based meat company Jack Mountain is also smoked all day over hazelnut shells. The result is a delicious, savory ham that will add a deep, rich, smoky flavor to your dinner table.

Heirloom Dried Marfax Beans

Cultivated by Boldly Grown Farm in Bow, Washington, these dried Marfax beans are mild in flavor, and buttery in texture, retaining their shape even with long, slow cooking.

Multigrain Bread & Corn Muffins

Both baked in nearby Snohomish by our favorite bakery, this week’s selection includes a healthy, freshly-baked loaf made with locally-milled Shepherd’s Grain flour and seven different whole grains, plus a hint of honey and toasted sunflower seeds, as well as light and fluffy corn muffins! (Just add honey!)

Evodia Garnacha 2020 Altovinum

This dark purple Spanish wine possesses inky aromas of black cherry, red licorice, red raspberry and ripe plum with a beautiful floral touch and baked spices. On the palate, it is very fresh and supple with rich berry fruit flavors, peppery overtones and a succulent finish.

Farm Fresh Eggs

As they spend more time outdoors with the improving 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.

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.

Seasonal Fruit

Cara Cara oranges, Minneola tangelos and lemons.

Seasonal Organic Greens

Hearty collard greens to pair with this week’s smoky ham hocks and heirloom beans.

Seasonal Organic Produce

This week’s produce selection also includes sweet yellow onions, orange carrots, baby golden beets, French fingerling potatoes, leeks and Calcot spring onions.

Fresh Garden Herbs

Garlic, thyme, chives, Mojito mint and fresh bay leaves from the walled garden and hoophouse at Bella Luna Farms.
