Why Are My Eggs Dirty?!

Most of our customers have probably noticed that we do not wash our eggs before sending them with you, but I bet you don't know why!   We do have a reason! We aren't just being lazy.  LOL

So here is why we do not wash our eggs.

Did you know that egg shells are porous?   God designed them to have a micro membrane coating on them called “bloom” to keep baby chicks and their environment safe and clean.  Bacteria has a hard time getting inside a dry egg. Washing dirty eggs removes the bloom and invites bacteria into the egg. Washing eggs in cool water actually creates a vacuum, pulling unwanted bacteria inside even faster!  So we don't wash our eggs because we believe it is safer for you.  

We do recommend that you wash your eggs with warm water before cracking them into your skillet.  

One of these eggs is not a farm egg! Do you know which one??
