Inside The March Discovery Box
NARRATIVE FOOD POPCORN FOR PEACE
Popcorn for Peace is a love story. Jennifer, the Founder of Narrative Food, has a long history of popcorn in her family – in the early 1900's her great grandfather built a large chain of movie theaters spanning the great Midwest -- but really, the movie theaters were just an excuse to sell popcorn. The family spans three generations of popcorn sellers, and with this bag of popcorn, Jennifer becomes the fourth. Jennifer's beau, coincidentally named Beau added the spice to her life and to this popcorn with this Umami smoked salt blend from his 50 year old Olympia-based spice shop Buck's Spices.
SOL SIMPLE REGENERATIVE ORGANIC DRIED PINEAPPLE
This white and tangy Monte Lirio variety pineapple is Regenerative Organically grown by family farmers in Nicaragua and dried in small batches inside solar dehydrators, preserving their natural sweetness and flavor. Certified Regenerative Organic.
12 TIDES KELP CHIPS
Sea Salt Puffed Kelp Chips are an homage to the ocean, simple and crave-worthy. Made only from organic seaweed and ingredients you can pronounce, you can trust your kelp chips to be as nutritious as they are delicious.
JUNE TAYLOR FRUIT PEEL CANDY
June Taylor is an artist who created the most meticulous and delicious range of preserved fruit products imaginable for over 30 years, in her small shop in Berkeley, the world-reknown Still Room. Now that she has retired, we have been saving the last of her candied fruit peel for a very special gift. Every piece of fruit, every label, every container is chosen carefully by June to honor the fruit and the experience of the preserves. June has maintained a very human scale to everything she does and she uses all the parts of the fruit. Think of them like "upcycling", using every part of the fruit. As she is in the process of retiring – we invite you to savor these last June Taylor candies! Flavors vary and were produced in small quanties.
RENEWAL MILL UPCYCLED PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE
This do-gooder little cookie is out to renew your faith in the food system by empowering you to fight both food waste & climate change, one sumptuous bite at a time. Renewal Mill has collaborated with B Corp Miyokos Creamery, the world’s finest plant milk creamery. When Miyoko’s crafts their award-winning vegan butter occasionally a little gets left over to upcycle. So Renewal Mill upcycled it to make this amazing vegan cookie that’s Miyoko approved.
