A few weeks ago I told you that my Mom welcomed chickens into our family. Well, what started out as 4 chickens has turned into 12! I know, that’s a LOT of chickens.Last week I brought home dozen eggs and was floored by the difference between a store bought egg and a farm fresh egg, really it was crazy!
Let’s see if you can tell which eggs in the bowl are store bought cage free eggs and which are straight off the farm. (Answer: The bottom 2 yellow yolks on the left side.)
Did you get it right? It’s pretty crazy huh? Not only is there a big difference in the color of the yolk, the shell of a FF egg is harder and they have rich creamier taste to them. It’s even a different experience scrambling them. With store bought eggs you can whisk them right up before pouring them into the pan. With FF eggs the yolks are so creamy and dense that you have to whisk a bit longer to break them up. So far we’ve baked, poached, scrambled, and fried our FF eggs. I could tell a difference in each way that I’ve eaten them.
Here's a picture from our breakfast last weekend. Farm Fresh scrambled eggs, French toast dredged in FF eggs, fresh squeezed Orange Juice, fresh strawberries, turkey bacon, and a little powder sugar to sprinkle over the French toast. When I put the powder sugar in a coffee cup my youngest niece asked if I was going to drink it. Ha, I do love me some sugar but I haven't resorted to drinking it straight out of the cup……yet!
