What’s In The Box? May 2-8

Taco Night
Spice things up with this week’s taco-themed box, which comes complete with Skagit River Ranch’s signature chorizo sausage, and hand-pressed, wholegrain tortillas. Top your tacos with garden-grown cilantro, a squeeze of lime, and a sprinkling of smoky chili powder, whip up a side of organic Painted Pony beans, and you’ve got all the makings of a feast to celebrate Cinco de Mayo on Sunday. Also included: Cinnamon-raisin bread, farm-fresh eggs, crisp spring greens, creamy Greek yogurt and juicy mandarin oranges. Enjoy!

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

Skagit River Ranch Chorizo Sausage

This pig has kick: Spiced with cumin, coriander and Ancho chili powder, this flavorful sausage from our friends at the Skagit River Ranch in Sedro-Woolley are crafted from their famous all-natural pork and make for a spicy addition to any Tex-Mex fare you choose, from tacos to frittatas!

Patty Pan Cooperative Wholegrain Flour Tortillas

The locally-made, hand-pressed tortillas from this Shoreline-based worker-owned coop are crafted from just four stellar ingredients: Olive oil, salt, water and organic flour from Cairnspring Mills located in the Skagit Valley.

Organic Painted Pony Beans

These heirloom dry beans from Garden Treasures retain their distinct markings when cooked, making them a beautiful and delicious addition to any Tex-Mex spread. A close cousin to the Jacobs Calle bean, the brown and white bean will soon be a new favorite.

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Baked just for us by our favorite local bakery, this fresh-baked cinnamon raisin loaf makes for a delicious base for sandwiches, or your morning toast!

The Vincent Columbia Valley Rosé 2022

Crafted from a combination of Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah grapes, this crisp, dry wine from Mark Ryan Winery features a supple finish, with refreshing acidity and a lithe texture.

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.

Samish Bay Organic Greek Yogurt

This perfectly-creamy, yet delightfully-tangy pure strained yogurt hails from a certified-organic, 200-acre dairy farm in Skagit County that produces gorgeous artisan cheeses and yogurts crafted from the milk of their herd of Milking Shorthorn cows.

Hayshaker Farms Habanada Chili Powder

This blend of three pepper varieties, the Numex Suave, Habanada and Roulette, boasts fruity, tropical notes. All grown on Hayshaker Farms in the Walla Walla Valley, and then dried and ground, the resulting chili powder will impart tons of flavor (but not the burn!) to your chosen recipe.

Seasonal Organic Greens

A beautiful mix of spring salad greens.

Seasonal Organic Produce

This week’s produce selection also includes Calcot red spring onions, cauliflower, green Bell peppers, leeks, sweet onions and jalapeño peppers.

Fresh Fruit

Gold Nugget mandarins and limes.

Fresh Garden Herbs

Thyme, garlic, Mojito mint, parsley and cilantro from the walled garden at Bella Luna.
