I just LOVE fresh eggs! And you can't get much fresher than this! These lovely beauties come from some very happy, well kept, free range chickens. We have the good fortune to have met Shirley, an ex-co-worker of my daughter Kate, who lives close by on a small farm. We refer to her chickens as "Shirley's girls". I love the colors of the shells...soft to sage green, and the lovely browns...and i cannot get over the color of the yolks...dark orange and so rich. I got so attached to these eggs and the chickens who laid them that last Christmas, my daughter gave me a photo of "Shirley's girls" as a Christmas gift! Now that's Love!
**NOTE: I got a few emails asking if the free range, fresh eggs tasted different from store bought eggs, and i have to say YES they do! The shells are thicker (more calcium in the chicken's diet?) the whites cook up nicely(less watery) and the yolks are a deep rich orange color. The flavor of the egg is more intense...Maybe we will hear from a few experts who have chickens and eggs who sometimes check in on my blog..Paula? Amy?
