Classic & Colorful
As we greet the month of November this week, it seems as if more classic autumn weather has also arrived in the Puget Sound region. As we cozy up to the (delightful) sounds of rain outside, this week’s box fittingly celebrates the new month’s cozy and color-rich flavors. With the likes of fresh kiwi berries, Puntarelle chicory, broccolini, carrots and fennel, as well as cinnamon-raisin bread, farm-fresh chicken and duck eggs, fragrant herbs and edible flowers, this lineup is sure to bring comfort to your soul; enjoy!
Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:
Fresh Kiwi Berries
A cousin of the well-known kiwi, these smooth, grape-sized Anna Hardy kiwi berries boast a delightfully sweet flavor!
A mixture of bright and cheery blooms to add color and spice to your salads this week!
Fresh Cinnamon-Raisin Bread
Made with natural starter, cinnamon and moist, chewy Flame raisins, this freshly-baked loaf is from our favorite bakery in Snohomish.
Clos des Lumières L’éclat Côtes du Rhône 2018
With notes of oak, dark cherry and a hint of vanilla, this easy-drinking yet bold red from the southern Rhône region of France also features medium tannins and a dry finish after a push of fruit up front.
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
Our small flock of heritage breed laying hens gives us fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown and green. With the shorter days, the girls are up with the sun to roam the outdoors. Bedtime is coming much earlier now, as we see them heading back into their house to roost as the sun is going down.
Seasonal Organic Greens
This week’s greens include Mizuna greens, fall salad mix, mixed mini lettuces and Chioggia radicchio, as well as Puntarelle. Widely used in Central and Southern Italian cuisine, especially in Roman fare, and very popular for its fresh and slightly bitter taste, this chicory variant is characterized by an elongated shape, light green stems and dandelion shaped leaves.
Seasonal Organic Vegetables
This week’s produce selection also includes bunching green onions, broccolini, Huckleberry Gold potatoes, carrots, fennel and tomatoes.
Fresh Garden Herbs
Italian parsley and garlic from the walled garden at Bella Luna Farms.
A sweet sampling of seasonal blooms.
Cacao Crudo 80% Dark Raw Cacao Bar
Hailing from Italy, Cacao Crudo is the creation of producer Daniele dell’Orco, who mixes classic Italian ingredients with high-quality, raw cacao beans to highlight the natural floral and fruity flavors of Criollo cacao. Amazingly creamy, this bar is made of just two ingredients—cacao paste and coconut flower sap.
