bayleaf loves to harvest the latest and greatest seasonal treats for you, our loyal customers. Often, we find an item that is so darn good, though, that it’s worth a repeat appearance on the shelves. Last year staff and customers alike had such fabulous results from the Urban Accents Turkey Brine & Rub Kit, we brought it back again just in time for all of your holiday turkeys (referring – of course – to the birds, not the relatives).

With Thanksgiving less than a week away, panicked people, in search of the most tender and tasty turkey ever, were snatching up this foolproof, three-step kit before the shipment was even off the pallet - because they know brined is the only way to go.

Brined poultry (and pork) is always best because of osmosis, hypertonic saline solutions, semi-permeable membranes, and some other sciency words. More simply put, brining makes for moist and flavorful meat.

So, what are you waiting for? Get a turkey, get a kit, and get cooking! It’s as easy as 1 (brine the bird with the Spiced Brine Blend in the included leakproof, heavy duty, BPA-free, zip-top bag), 2 (season said bird with the Smoky Peppercorn & Herb Rub), 3 (roast, smoke, or deep fry).

Don’t forget, while you are in, to order some Oystercatcher rolls, pick up some Matiz Gallego Organic Chestnuts for stuffing, antipasto items for the relish tray, and wine…yes, wine…plenty of wine…like the annual favorite Pierre-Marie Chermette Beaujolais nouveau or our latest find, Willamette Valley Teutonic Red Blend (an 80% Gewurztraminer 20% Pinot Noir blend that’s absolutely perfect for turkey) or even a bottle of Champagne, if you dare!

Neal’s Yard Dairy in London is regarded as one of the world’s best cheese shops, so it’s no surprise that bayleaf, 2017 Best of Whidbey Cheese Shop, would have Neal’s Yard Cheese in stock.

Neal’s Yard Dairy opened its doors in 1979 in an era when cheap and easy, mass-produced, processed, pre-packaged foods were quickly taking over the world markets. Their mission was to preserve the traditional British cheesemaking culture by forming lasting relationships with the best farmhouse cheesemakers from England and Ireland. Their goal was twofold - buy exceptional cheeses for their shop and foster the last few farms still producing cheeses with age-old care and proper methodology.

The cheeses are meticulously selected from forty regional cheesemakers and matured in Neal’s Yard temperature and humidity controlled facility in London, providing a set standard for maturation and preparation as well as for food safety as many of the cheeses are made using raw milk. Buyers from Neal’s Yard regularly visit each of the farms throughout the year to monitor the cheesemaking process and scrutinize each cheese for flavor, texture, color, and overall quality.

Neal’s Yard is as meticulous in deciding who can properly sell the cheeses as they are in the selection and care of each, so we at bayleaf were thrilled to be able to bring these preeminent selections to Whidbey Island. For a limited time, stop by and get a wedge of Appleby’s Cheshire - the traditional cheese used in Welsh Rarebit, Lancashire - the last farmhouse raw-milk Lancashire produced in the world, and Colston Bassett Stilton - one of the last properly made Stiltons anywhere.
