The incredible, edible egg. That's the slogan of the egg council, and I agree. Do you eat many eggs, and how do you like them cooked? What size and type do you prefer? I love eggs, the bigger the better. Jumbo are good. I could eat them cooked many ways several times a day. I try to always have at least four dozen on hand. So you can imagine my interest when I read an article a while ago. It talked about farm fresh, free range chickens. It said that chickens laid much better tasting eggs if they were cage free, running around and eating bugs and things like they are supposed to. It went on to say that compared to cage free, farm fresh eggs, regular supermarker eggs tasted like cardboard. Wow! Could it be that eggs can taste even better? I just had to check this out, so I headed for Whole Foods. It was there that I purchased organic, cage free eggs at almost $4.00 a dozen. I know it's way too expensive, but it was for a scientific test, it was not like I would buy them all the time. Back home, we compared them to cheap supermarket eggs. No taste difference!! I couldn't figure this out. Then a few weeks ago, I read an article in the paper. A food writer got her food expert friends together and they did blind taste tests of eggs she had just gathered from her own pet hens, and supermarket eggs. None of them could tell any difference!! So my taste buds have been justified!! Yet people keep saying how much better eggs are from cage free farm fresh hens. Any thoughts? The age old question is "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?" But I've known that answer for a long time.
So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to it's kind. And God saw that it was good. God blessed them and said "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth." Genesis 1:21
