Note from Azuki's Kitchen

Miki from Azuki's Kitchen is excited to list her holiday special breads again this year! She is thankful to those friends who sent her a reminder to ask for them again. She hopes you and your guests will enjoy them for this Thanksgiving Day.


Also, my Sourdough Pita no longer has soy in the ingredients! Now it's Soy Free and made with the organic olive oil instead. I hope you can enjoy this simply-made pita with your filling choices and bring to your Thanksgiving table! My pita bread will make the perfect vessel for your Thanksgiving leftovers - Turkey pita sandwich anyone?

What's going on with the Eggs?

That's a question I heard a lot this Wednesday. Right now all our farms have a limited amount of eggs. Order early! If it makes you all feel better I didn't even get eggs this past week...


Why do we have less eggs on the market?


  • shorter days - less daylight = less eggs
  • cold weather - hens' bodily resources go into keeping her warm rather than to producing eggs.
  • Autumn is molting season - chickens will molt and grow new feathers and produce less eggs


We'll have a new farm on board in December that will bring us more eggs! We should be back to normal by February.
