Granny’s Thirty-Ninth Pearl

Pearls of wisdom from an octogenarian who’s seen it all…

Brown eggs

Before you go off on one I’m not being racist about eggs. Entirely the opposite.

I contend, and I believe the science supports me, that the colour, flavour, texture, aroma of an egg has feck all to do with the colour of the shell.

The colour of the shell is dictated by the breed of chicken.

The colour of the yolk is determined by the quality and variety of food said chicken eats.

You can get brown eggs from battery hens who live a life of misery, and white ones from happy chickens who frolic in the sunshine…

You choose.
