Put on a pot of coffee and greet the day with warm, soulful brunch fare that stars our own cream biscuit mix, signature pear butter and farm-fresh eggs, plus a bevy of colorful fall produce to serve alongside like Chimayó chile peppers, fingerling potatoes and yellow onions incorporate into a cozy roasted veggie hash. Also included: Fresh multigrain bread, granola from Little Apple Treats and Cherry Valley Dairy’s silky-smooth butter with sea salt. Enjoy!
Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:
Chimayó Chile Peppers
Named for the tiny New Mexican village of Chimayó just north of Santa Fe from whence it first came, this pepper is earthier and smokier than a Hatch chile, and just a touch spicier than your average jalapeño—give them a quick roast in the oven to bring out even more of their inherent flavor.
F&L Cream Biscuit Mix
Just add cream! Made from organic flour, sugar and butter, plus aluminum-free baking powder and a dash of sea salt, our savory housemade biscuit mix bakes up light and fluffy. Top hot-from-the-oven biscuits with a slathering of Cherry Valley Dairy butter and our own pear butter, or craft a hearty breakfast sammie with the addition of some scrambled eggs!
Little Apple Treats Granola
This granola combines warm, enticing South American flavors with Northern California ingredients, featuring slow-toasted oats, quinoa flakes, glazed pumpkin seeds and a kiss of Mexican cinnamon.
Housemade Pear Butter
Fragrant with warming spices like cinnamon and cardamom, our signature spread stars the mellow, sweet flavors of orchard-picked pears.
Crafted in nearby Snohomish by our favorite bakery, this freshly-baked loaf is made with locally-milled Shepherd’s Grain flour and seven different whole grains, plus a hint of honey and toasted sunflower seeds.
Michel Gassier Nostre Païs Costières de Nîmes 2014
Crafted from a combination of Grenache, Carginan, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault grapes, this lush red wine brims with layers of fruit flavor. A deep red-violet in the glass, the nose shows intriguing aromas of black fruit, cherry, and hot stones followed up by rich flavors on the palate.
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, continuing to give us fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown, beige and cream.
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.
Farm & Larder Chicken Stock
Made from roasted Bella Luna chickens, this flavorful stock is simmered slowly for hours with carrots, onions and celery and seasoned with a dash of sea salt.
Taylor’s Gold Comice pears and Cosmic Crisp apples.
Seasonal Organic Greens
Lacinato kale and collard greens.
Seasonal Organic Vegetables
This week’s produce selection also includes leeks, Caracas carrots, red beets, Black Futsu squash, yellow onions, Tropea onions, Austrian Crescent fingerling potatoes and Brussels sprouts.
