Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

I know it probably sounds crazy that I would be sharing with you how to boil an egg, but unless you have boiled a FARM FRESH egg before you may have trouble like we did the first time we tried. Ever have eggs rip apart when you try to peel them?

The key to boiling a farm fresh egg is to disrupt the unusually thick membranes that connect it to the shell. As you will see in the step-by-step directions, the key is to add the eggs to already boiling water. By doing this you can disconnect the membranes.

Check out the EGGZY blog. This is the site I found the directions on when I searched How To Boil A Farm Fresh Egg on Google! I hope this helps.

I also wanted to tell you guys about a brand new feathure here at the Stinnett Family Farms site. I call it the HOMESTEAD TOOLBOX. How to boil a farm fresh egg will be the very first entry in the new toolbox. We hope to fill it with hundreds of useful tips and tricks that will save you time and money around your homestead. Feel free to e-mail us if you have any helpful tips and tricks that you use and would like to share with the community.

Thanks for joining us on this beautiful Monday morning. And as always....

Wish I saw this last week when I made egg salad using fresh eggs.  Most of the egg white ended up on the shell and out in the back 40.  Well, at least a few of the local animals enjoyed them?!  Thanks for the tip!

I'm going to try this method today! If it really works, I may put you in my will.

It really does work. I couldn't believe what a difference it made following these steps. And one more little helpful hint is that if you let the fresh eggs sit in the refrigerator for a few days and let them "settle" it works even better.
