Blue Eggs

Sister Mary, our chicken

It is not until you have actually had farm fresh eggs – truly fresh – that you can appreciate their goodness. The perfect blue of these Araucana shells, which house a yolk that stands tall and proffers a rich, deep saffron gold orb, has a perfect flavour that is heaven sent. The yolk colour is a result of the greens and insects they get to eat – a gourmet diet.

So we raised a handful of ‘girls’ to keep us in constant supply. They are free range and always complaining as they cluck around the property – providing further farm acoustics to our sanctuary called home.

Blue Eggs and Yellow Tomatoes: Recipes from a Modern Kitchen Garden by Jeanne Kelley is a great cook book that I love to use which features dishes inspired by her own organic produce from her home in Los Angeles.

    Do yellow tomatoes taste different from the red? That’s the question. I think they do, just a teeny bit, but others in my family think they are the same. Yellow raspberries aren’t the same taste as red ones – deinitely. But I’d love a bowl of either color right this minute!
