As the last of the autumn leaves fall, blanketing the ground with beautiful bursts of scarlet, amber and sienna, we are continuing to see the same colors grace the gardens and thus this week’s box. Enjoy such favorites as Lacinato kale, Black Spanish radish and a brand-new variety of winter squash alongside locally-sourced, pretty-pink smoked salmon, Jewish rye bread and herb-kissed cream cheese, as well as all the ingredients for our signature apple cake. To fall!
Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:
Lummi Island Smoked Wild Keta Salmon
Tender and perfectly flaky, this top-quality, reef net-caught Keta salmon is hot smoked over alder coals and kissed with just the right amount of seasoning. See this week’s recipes for a plethora of ideas for using this perfectly-pink, treasured ingredient.
Jewish Rye Bread
This dense, nutty loaf is baked for us by our favorite small bakery in Snohomish. Crafted with traditional dark rye flour, a natural sour rye starter and caraway seeds, this hearty bread is wonderful toasted and topped with smoked salmon and herbed cream cheese.
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.
Valdo Brut Prosecco DOC
This playful Italian Prosecco is a beautiful straw yellow color and is well-balanced in structure. Matched by an aromatic fruity fragrance, it is a perfect pairing for starters and especially seafood.
Farm Fresh Eggs
Our small flock of heritage breed laying hens gives us fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown and green. With the shorter days of fall, the girls are up with the sun to roam the outdoors. Bedtime is coming much earlier now, as we see them heading into their house to roost as the sun is going down.
Housemade Herbed Cream Cheese
Kissed with farm-fresh herbs, this rich and silky cream cheese is crafted in our farmstead creamery.
Apple Cake Mix
Crafted from our own signature recipe, this apple cake mix bakes up moist and delicious when simply mixed with eggs, diced apples and walnuts—see recipes for details!
Mixed-variety apples from the orchard.
Seasonal Organic Greens
Iron-rich spinach and Lacinato kale.
Robin’s Koginut Winter Squash
Smooth and silky like Kabocha squash with the rich, sweet flavor of a Butternut, this new hybrid squash is the brainchild of Chef Dan Barber and seed breeder Michael Mazourek’s new venture, Row 7, a startup that selectively breeds a variety of vegetables to maximize factors like yield, shelf stability, and, of course, flavor.
Seasonal Organic Vegetables
This week’s produce selection also includes Megaton leeks, Kyoto red carrots, Russian banana fingerling potatoes, Hakurei turnips and Black Spanish radishes.
Fresh Garden Herbs
Italian parsley, sage, thyme and garlic from the walled garden and greenhouse.
