My weekend was filled with eggs. Decorating them and cooking them, I’ve had enough poultry protein for a while! I usually purchase brown eggs but bought white for Easter crafts (they dye better). I don’t know why I buy the brown ones, except maybe they are prettier, there is no taste difference that I can tell. Egg colour lies with the breed of chicken it comes from, white chickens lay white eggs, and brown chickens lay brown eggs. Gorgie blue eggs (if you are lucky enough to get them) come from a South American breed called Araucana.
Some day… when I have a country house blue eggs will be my staple.
