A Good Egg Is Hard To Buy
With our hens in low production over the winters, we regularly resort to buying in some eggs. The quality always disappoints me. Even local, pastured eggs at $6 and $7 a dozen literally pale in comparison to those of our hens! Maybe this is one of those things money can't buy--at least not in commercial quantity?
The picture shows our hen egg at left, and one each of the $6 and $7/dozen eggs at right. (Plus other standard ingredients of my scrambles: cooking greens, acorn halves, cherry kernels, and skirret root. Fennel seed is in there but too small to see. Garlic to be added at the end.)
