Before I bought this beautiful hand made egg basket I used to keep my eggs in the fridge, even though the stall in the market where I purchased them, sold them out of a crate which had been sitting out on a shelf, at room temperature. Though once I bought this basket, it got me to thinking, why I bother keeping my eggs in the fridge… because my mother always did so and the USDA recommends it. All the more reason to leave them out and see what happens I say, my mini rebellions! And if the entire country of Mexico is leaving their eggs out on the counter and no one is dying, it can’t be all that bad, right?
The eggs are super fresh, brought in directly from the ranch (the key I think), so freshly laid that the shells even come with the occasional feather attached. The yolks are bright orangeyellow and the flavor, consistently wow! never have I had better tasting eggs.
