I'm sure these eggs are laughing at me

Post by mysty »

This is the second time I have had a smiley face looking at me from the frying pan.
It could be someone trying to call me from the after life. :lol:

You have the same problem as me. Crack an egg into a pan and it spreads fully to the edges. On its way to my pet hate with fried eggs. Paper thin crunchy white and undercooked yolk.

Aardwark - that's because the eggs aren't very fresh. With newlaid eggs the whites are less fluid and stick aroung the yolks.
Fresh egg whites are also quicker to go firm when whipped for meringue etc. and the white sticks to the yolk more when separating.
The bought egg should have a date stamp on it.

What she (he?) said! If I crack a just collected egg you in fact have 3 bits to the egg, the yolk the white and a clear liquid (which gets mixed up with the white after a while to make the white more liquid). So cracking a fresh egg you end up with the white being quite thick and not running about at all! Bought from the shop eggs can actually have been laid weeks and weeks before making it to the supermarkets. Always worth finding a neighbour to sell you some eggs or a shop that has farm eggs (our little hardware store in the village sells them) if you can't keep your own little feather friends!

Sounds like my egg laying chicken is dropping some dodgy eggs. They are to be used by the 10th of August. :lol:

clothmama - you're the second person on here who thinks I could be masculine - getting a bit worried. I think I'm going to have to change my user name to TriciaF [smile].
As for eggs, we kept chickens all the time we were in France and had lovely eggs from them.
mysty - I thought the stamp gave the date they were laid, but obviously not.

Not laughing, smiling at you. Quite different.

Are you an expert egg reader or is it because you cannot see his teeth. I say his as no female could look as bad as that. :lol:

The box gives the use by date, the stamp on the egg is how the chickens are kept, where they are kept, and in what building.
