My friend, Caryn, is not only a terrific jeweler, but also an avid gardener and keeps chickens. Quite the farm gal!
Above is a picture of the eggs I recently aquired from her. I've not ever seen yokes so orange. And cooked, they are so flavorful and, oh, so, delicious.
She always labels the harvest date of her eggs with masking tape and a sharpie. I thought she might appreciate fancier labels, so I spent most of yesterday and today making her a set of labels....(I should have been cleaning from the basement flood, but just couldn't bring myself to work on it!)
I made 24, but I don't think they will last very long considering her hens produce about 13 eggs/day! She's been amazed that they were this active all winter....she's hoping for more as the warm weather continues.
Anyway, these will be a surprise for her next time I see her.
