A special thanks to the Galvonds for their most beautiful and delicious eggs! It’s so nice to have farm fresh eggs again. All of the colors are gorgeous! And so are the chickens who lay them!
If you have an egg farm nearby you, I encourage you to visit and relish in some truly local food. Meet the chickens and the people who care for them. If you’ve never had the opportunity to see a farm fresh egg next to a store bought, “free range, organic” egg, check out the photos below. The farm fresh egg is on the left. Notice the darker color and firmness of the yolk and white. If you look closely at the second set of photos, you can actually see the store bought egg yolk “wrinkling” and the white running all around the edge of the whole dish. Store bought eggs just pale in comparison. Not to mention the flavor difference. Baked goods are better, custards are richer and ice creams creamier with farm fresh eggs. In short, great basic ingredients make for great dishes.
