The first difference you’ll notice with farm fresh eggs is they come in various colors like a blue-green color!
The next difference is farm fresh eggs come in all different sizes, some larger and some smaller than store bought.
There is a difference in the color of the egg white and yolk. The farm fresh egg tends to be more clear, and the yolk is a golden yellow color that is darker than store-bought.
Farm fresh eggs taste much better than store-bought, and they have a better texture. Store-bought eggs have to travel for who knows how many days, just to reach the grocery store.
You ready for this? Farm fresh eggs don’t need to be washed as they have a protective layer around the outer shell. But, you can wash them right before using them or before placing them in the fridge if you want.
Wipe the eggs with a dry, slightly abrasive sponge to remove dirt and droppings. Rinse the eggs under warm water. Do not use soap, bleach or detergent as it will be absorbed through the eggshells.
If you choose not to wash your farm fresh eggs, they can last about 2 months outside of the refrigerator! Keep at room temperature and away from direct sunlight.
