Umm, yeah, we can buy them uncleaned if we buy them straight from the farm (or from a Farmers' Market) I do it regularly. Same with raw milk. Just seems a little weird for most people though; what with bits of feathers and chicken poop still on them. In four years in England I never bought a single egg that hadn't had all that cleaned off.Waterglass preserved eggs are just eggs. They don't look or taste weird, they're just sealed and kept in stasis until used. Normally only for a few months until the hens start laying again.
Either the egg was wiped clean (mind UK eggs are not allowed to be sold 'cleaned', while USA eggs aren't allowed to be sold uncleaned. Ours are left protected and last longer.)....
-Deviled eggs...... recipes and other ideas very welcome.
How on earth are your eggs dirty Santaman2000 ?
The chicken's physiology means that the oviduct kind of extrudes though the exit enough that the egg is laid clean. All that's on it are the fluids from the oviduct which is pretty much a sterile coating for the egg.
That's why ours aren't cleaned, because in doing so that protective coating is removed.
What he said. Plus the hens will poop in the nest (on the eggs) after laying them (especially hens with worms; which is most proper free ranging hens and some commercial battery hens as well)With free ranging hens laying in a nest box there's a chance of the next hen getting dirty feet on the previous egg or worse. Regularly collecting eggs and keeping hens as clean as possible helps or using some form of cage.
That's a quite idyllic ideal. It's also staged. Yard eggs are not only rarely that clean, but they're never that uniform in size and color. Those were store bought eggs placed there for the video. Reality isFirst minute of this video
