Of course, fresh eggs cost more: around six dollars a dozen versus around two dollars for a "conventional" dozen. (If you're buying the fancy shmancy supermarket eggs, you're only saving a dollar or two.)
Is it worth spending forty cents on an egg instead of twelve? Yeah. Yes. YES. (By the way, I hemmed and hawed over buying depleted old supermarket eggs to use for this photo. I rationalized it by thinking if I could get one person to switch to fresh eggs, it would be worth it. Then Lisa over at 100 Days of Real Food wrote about this exact same topic, photo-comparison included! It's in the air, people.)
When Darwin and I crack an egg, we've taken to saying, "thank you, chicken, for this egg." Corny, I know, but a fresh egg is a gift; it's even gold.
Where do yours come from?
