Deciphering Egg Labels

Last week’s egg discussion was awesome! Thank you for your many wonderful and well-informed comments! Wanted to share a quick link with you today that helps with deciphering egg labels. And the I promise we’ll stop talking eggs…at least for now!

Ever wonder what all those different labels on eggs mean? You know, “cage free,” “fertile” and the like? Click here for a description of each label. My friend Nikki shared the link with me a few years ago and I found it very useful.  I did post the link in the comments on the previous egg post, but wanted to highlight it quickly in case you missed it.

Be sure to bop in here tomorrow…I have an AMAZING cake recipe for you. In fact, I’m going to go eat some right now to get me geared up for writing the post. Oh the things I do for you. Really, it’s rough.

    I only buy eggs from a local farmer’s wife. I’ve seen the hens wandering around. And…the eggs are tasty!
