Benjamin Shine Posted May 6, 2012 Share Posted May 6, 2012 I live in San Francisco, where there are dozens of nearby producers of pastured eggs. These eggs are not like conventional store-bought eggs! They have more body and flavor. The yolks are rich orange, not watery yellow. The whites are firmer than standard runny eggs; they hold their shape to a small oval when I put them into the frying pan. I'd been frying them in bacon grease, which is amazing, but I just tried them soft-boiled for a change. Amazing! It turns out that these eggs have more egg flavor than conventional eggs. So rich and creamy! My current batch is from Soul Food Farms and costs $9.50/dozen. That's 3x what a dozen standard eggs would cost, but it's on par with cost/weight of other high-quality proteins like grass-fed meat and pastured chicken. A sign at the store said that there is 2000 sq ft of pasture for each chicken. That's 4x the size of a studio apartment in San Francisco! I've also had great pastured eggs from Eatwell Farms. Give pastured eggs a try; you won't go back. -benji Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
