Many of you know I grudgingly grew up in a suburb (I wanted to be much more rural) and as such my eggs growing up were from the grocery store. As a result, I barely even liked eggs. When I did eat them I wanted them covered in something else. I wanted to share what I have learned.
In the last month I have been eating a lot of eggs for multiple reasons. 1) I am on a very tight diet, that is basically 1200 or less calories while also getting most of my daily values (y’all, I am being monitored by a doctor. You don’t try that at home). Meaning, an egg a day has been a huge help for getting in the protein. 2) Our ducks have started laying and we have eggs coming out of our ears.
I have learned, and want to share with any like me who didn’t know. Farm fresh eggs are a completely different world from the eggs at the grocery store (can they even be called eggs?). Farm eggs are mouth watering. Yet, it gets better. I hadn’t tried duck eggs before either. They are amazingly good. They are just a touch creamier than a chicken egg and slightly bigger. They are rich, and delicious and somewhat better for you than the store bought counterparts. Also, duck eggs are particularly good for baking.
My foodie advice? Find some fresh farm eggs, duck if you can, and enjoy them!
