What’s In The Box? May 30-June 5

Ode to the Egg
Creamy and rich, eggs are one of the world’s finest gifts to the cook, as they are delicious served scrambled, poached, whisked or fried. Thus, this week’s delivery is devoted to the glorious egg, and an extra-special one at that, too, with decadent oversize duck eggs to go along with those from our brood of heritage-breed hens. Also filled with an assortment of egg-friendly pairings—think: organic breakfast sausages from Skagit River Ranch, fresh Challah bread, housemade crème fraîche, and orange marmalade—plus, a bevy of fresh produce like asparagus, pea tendrils and bright citrus, this breakfast-themed box will help you craft the perfect egg.

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

Skagit River Ranch Breakfast Sausage

With a flavor profile that includes hints of sweet maple syrup and savory spices, these incredible breakfast sausages are made from the all-natural pork raised on the Skagit River Ranch in Sedro-Woolley. These pampered pigs roam outdoors in certified-organic pasture land to root and dig, thriving on a diet of flax seed, corn and wheat.

Challah Bread

Baked just for us by our favorite bakery in Snohomish, this fresh loaf boasts a sweet, rich flavor thanks to a traditional base of silky eggs and Shepherd’s Grain flour, plus a touch of sugar.

Housemade Orange Marmalade

Tangy and sweet-tart, this signature housemade marmalade is excellent spread on your morning toast!

Ercole Barbera del Monferrato

This easy-going, liter sized 100% Barbera red is meant for sharing, bursting with juicy fruit flavors like red cherries, plus hints of lavender, thyme and spice. (Fun fact: The wines by Ercole, which means “Hercules” in Italian, are made by a generations-old co-op of local growers in the Monferrato region of Italy.)

Housemade Crème Fraîche

This rich and silky crème fraîche is crafted by our in-house farmstead creamery, Bellsong, from pasteurized organic sweet cream.

Duck Eggs

With near-transparent egg whites and color-rich oversize yolks, these local duck eggs are a chef’s dream, lending flavorful appeal to a variety of dishes.

Farm Fresh Eggs

As they spend more time outdoors in the sunnier 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.

Seasonal Organic Greens

Mixed baby Romaine, Belgian endive and pea tendrils.

Seasonal Organic Fruit & Produce

This week’s produce selection also includes asparagus, French Breakfast radishes and green onions, plus Gold Nugget mandarins and Meyer lemons.

Fresh Garden Herbs

Chive blossoms, living Genovese basil, and parsley from the walled garden at Bella Luna.
