Another egg BTW - if you want to know if the egg is fresh without breaking the shell put it in cold water, if they are stale they stand up, if very fresh they lay down on the bottom of the container. Many apologies if you already knew this but I was surprised the other day when someone I was talking to didn't.

I love doing the stand the egg up on the counter trick...I don't have a problem re: stale eggs...I have to mark the carton I want to cure for hb eggs...that's what happens when you have laying hens...fresh eggs every morning. I love gathering the eggs when they are still warm and rushing into the house and popping a couple in a CI pan. The white dances across the pan and it takes about 90 seconds to cook a runny fried egg...short of chasing a hen around the yard with a frying pan ready to catch the egg, I don't think an egg gets any fresher than that!

We've had luck improving the peelability of hard boiled fresh duck eggs by storing hard boiled unpeeled eggs in a refrigerated tightly sealed jar for 3 or 4 days.

I had feta, tomato salad with olive oil and basil with black empeltre olives and crusty bread. Admittedly I had been up a couple of hours before I ate.
