    Default eggs

    I opened a thread on eggs

    I remember on my mom's family farm in armenia they had lots of eggs...I fished for a few and what I remember most on my last trip was how hard the eggs there were to crack. The shells were a lot stronger than the average california egg. Weird.

    Yesterday I was wondering why extra large eggs were called extra large when they're basically the same as large eggs. If they were ostrich eggs, they could be called extra large eggs. But I heard duck eggs were soft and rubbery. Or maybe those were turtle eggs. Are ostrich eggs as crackable and edible as chicken eggs? Quail eggs are cute. Three quail eggs are equal to two chicken eggs. I like Americana chickens because they lay green eggs. An Americana ostrich would be nice if they laid giant green eggs. But ostriches would probably be difficult to keep. I'd settle for Americana geese. I know goose eggs are like extra-large chicken eggs. This reminds me of a Dr. Seuss book. That tiny hummingbird egg? Typing of tiny eggs, when I first saw this thread title I thought you might be referring to human eggs. I have some of those.

    Eggs are disgusting.

    Also: keeping the a fridge is fucking ridiculous.

    eggs are my go-to when i don't feel like thinking about what to cook because i always have eggs and bread around the house and its easy to crack an egg in the pan and plop a slice of bread into the toaster.

    i think ppl should be aware of where their food comes from. i only buy eggs from my farmers market...they are cert organic and free range. they have the most tasty eggs i've ever had because their chickens eat bugs. i don't like missing the market on sundays which means i won't have eggs for the rest of the week like i did this past sunday; now i want fried rice

    Eggs in a microwave is iffy but one thing I like to do is take some eggs, 1-2 eggs and mix it 1/4 cup chicken broth and season to taste. Mix it well to get it nicely aerated but not too much. Then I just nuke it for 30s and it form this sort of custard thing which is very mild, fluffy and has a very soft texature. Don't cook it too long because it only really need a small amount of time 30s-1 minute. It should be very delicate but tasty. You can top it with all sort of things and add things like garlic to it.

    In Germany you can either buy eggs from indoor broilers, free-range broilers and organic broilers. I always take the last one, though they are more expensive.

    This song comes to mind now - a parody on the song "We gonna start the fire": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbPOYga4ifM
    The lyrics have been changed to: "Wie willste deine Eier? Willste Rühreier oder lieber Spiegelei?" - "How do you want your eggs? Do you want scrambled eggs or sunny side up?"

    I take them for a snack to work and i always get "what is that smell in here?" I just say "whatever it is, it isn't as bad as anal glands" *veterinary hospitals*

    I miss my country life, not just my home but the neighbor had the best little hard-working family farm - fresh eggs! Orange yolks! So superior in taste! But better still was the raw milk from Jersey cows. I made my own butter with the cream and it was the best milk, and so good for you. I have no source for raw milk now, so I travel a bit to get non-homogenized milk that is only lightly pasteurized in small batches from a local dairy. And its not cheap. The raw milk was cheap, and so were those perfect eggs from their clean farm......

    P.S. And yes, real eggs nice hard shells! Speaking of shells, I usually had a basket somewhat-dirty fresh farm eggs on the counter. Because if you don't wash them, you don't need to refrigerate them! How about that?

    Eggs are just beautiful. You can make so many different tasting dishes with them and they're so healthy for you. I love you eggs <3

    A lot of people care about it. I only buy organic ones. They also taste better.

    Nonsense, most of them don't care about it, they are just socially positioning themselves. They just want to believe they are caring, ethically behaving people. Ecological stores only exist to satisfy the need for this illusion. A truly ethically produced egg is outrageously expensive.

    Buy some chickens from the animal shelter for almost free and raise them in your yard on kitchen scraps - practically free eggs and as ethical as you want them to be.
