“A good egg.”
How would you describe your perfect egg? A rich brown colour; a little bit speckly; a little bit shiny; and with a deep golden yellow yolk when you crack it open? This is a Burford Brown free range egg – everything an egg should be.
In fact the hens that produce these eggs are from a heritage British breed and are free to roam from dawn to dusk. The sort of eggs you expect to buy from a farm.
They are really tasty when eaten simply, but also work wonderfully well in baking. Since this is the time of year to think about making your Christmas pudding and Christmas cake then you will be buying lots more eggs. And I think it is worth using the best ingredients in these labours of love. Because every box of Burford Browns has eggs of slightly different sizes, which is part of their charm, use the bigger ones in the box if the recipe calls for large eggs.
If you are going to put all your eggs in one basket, make sure they are Burford Browns.
