farm fresh eggs

I just ate my first Clark Summit Farm eggs this morning, in anticipation of a bike ride. They were very orange, and very yummy. Also, priced like spun gold–I’ll think of it as 68 cents per egg, which doesn’t sound as bad as $8.10 per dozen.

    We had a 2.50 each goose egg a few weeks back. It was… intensely yolky/eggy.

      I had a duck egg at my family’s place last year, and it was oddly gamy. Not bad, just clearly not a chicken egg. There was a peahen egg this visit, but I didn’t eat it.

      Liza Dalby says that in Sei Shonagon’s list of Refined and Elegant Things, she actually lists goose eggs, not duck eggs, but that since the goose has so many negative connotations (silly goose, goose flesh, etc) in English, some early translator decided that duck eggs would sound better.
