Happy Eggs Happy Life
In Partnership with The Happy Egg Co.
We talked to Derek from CA and here’s what he had to say:
Derek on the Colors of Heritage Breed Shells
I have never seen brown and blue eggs like this before. I love the color; I have never seen blue eggs before and it’s nice to have the blue and brown together. It has a nice natural feel about it, especially because they are free range.
What He Thought of the Rich Amber Yolk. . .
I noticed the yolk right away when I opened the egg. The color was much richer than I am used to seeing in eggs. I just thought the outer color was different. I never would have thought I would see something different within the egg. I was pleasantly surprised.
His Thoughts on Heritage Breed’s Distinct Flavor
The flavor of the egg was very nice. I really wanted to capture as much flavor of the egg as possible so I just made a fried egg with the yolk slightly runny. It definitely tasted better than what I usually get. I am not sure if it’s because I know it’s free range or because the egg looks more natural, but not only did it taste great I felt good eating it. It was almost like a luxury egg.
Derek on Happy Egg’s Commitment to Free-Range Farming. . .
As an animal lover I love knowing how well Happy Egg hens are raised. It’s nice to know that they have so much space to run free and are not living in tiny cages. Maybe that’s why the eggs taste more natural.
