It’s almost turkey time—allow us to lend a helping hand with the big meal thanks to a beautiful assortment of accoutrements like a turkey brining kit and locally-milled pastry flour, plus seasonal produce such as rainbow carrots, Sweet Louisa apples, Delicata squash, fingerling potatoes and Winter Luxury pumpkin to use in your holiday pies. Also included: More provisions to incorporate into the day’s most-anticipated dishes, from Challah bread and farm-fresh eggs to fragrant sage and other flavor-packed herbs. Here’s to a happy holiday!

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

Turkey Brining Kit

Our signature dry-brine mixture is crafted from fresh farm herbs, kosher salt and aromatic spices. See this week’s recipes for full instructions on this simple and easy way to produce an incredibly juicy turkey.

Cairnspring Mills Pastry Flour

This Burlington-based company is rediscovering the heart and soul of flour-making by producing small-batch, responsibly-grown flours made solely from wheat grown in the Pacific Northwest. Ground from Cara Club wheat that thrives in the Skagit Valley and is known for its disease resistance, this soft, silky white flour is perfect for pie dough!

Challah Bread

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

Ercole Bianco Monferrato DOC

With notes of peach, pear and sweet nectarine with delicate flowers, this white wine blend is crafted from Cortese, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Fun fact: The Ercole, which means “Hercules” in Italian, is made by a generations-old co-op of local growers in the Monferrato region of Italy.

Farm Fresh Eggs

Imported from Italy, these herb-kissed, flatbread-style crackers are a wonderful addition to a cheeseboard, or other appetizer, before the big meal.

Seasonal Fruit

Sweet Louise apples from the orchard.

Seasonal Organic Greens

Pea shoots, Castelfranco radicchio and a gorgeous mix of salad greens.

Winter Luxury Pie Pumpkin

There’s nothing quite like a Thanksgiving pie made with fresh pumpkin purée, especially purée crafted from this lovely variety! See this week’s recipes for our foolproof method.

Seasonal Organic Vegetables

This week’s produce selection also includes fennel, rainbow carrots, leeks, Delicata squash, Austrian fingerling potatoes, green onions and Chioggia beets.

Fresh Garden Herbs

Italian parsley, sage and thyme from the walled garden and hoophouse at Bella Luna Farms.
