You know I'm an egghead. I eat a lot of eggs. I'd probably eat only eggs if I could. Okay, maybe not only, but pretty close.
With all the egg-eating I do, I've become accustomed to a certain amount of, well, crackage technique. Here is my theory.
There's a huge difference between eggs. Not necessarily between white and brown eggs, but between the "got-from-a-local-farmer/free range/cage free/ humanely treated/organic".
Personally, I only recently have noticed the "humanely treated." It kind of surprised me. I guess I was thinking all "free-range, cage-free, organic" were treated humanely. Boy, was I wrong!
I have learned that the "organic" label does not guarantee "humane" treatment. Organic just means that the item was produced out of a non-genetically modified base, which don't get me wrong, is still great!
However, in order to get the best egg crackage, the bird needs to eat, roam and lay eggs like nature intended, without the chicken ever receiving a handout. I mean, they lay one egg a day!
So, I am saying that aside from getting eggs directly from a local farmer, humane eggs are the way to go: perfect crackage, nice sun-colored yokes, and taste you can enjoy!
