Free range eggs don’t come fresher than this thanks to Tia chicken and Maria chicken who happily live in the garden of Mr & Mrs S 🙂
This evening I went to Waitrose to purchase some corn on the cob and exited, quite unexpectedly, with some quails eggs (as well as corn on the cob, and a load of other items too – how do shops do that?! make you come out with far more than what you went in for?). So tonight we had boiled quails eggs and celery salt. I won’t patronise by writing out a recipe for this: you simply boil the eggs (1 minute and 30 seconds), remove shell, dip into celery salt, put in mouth, chew and swallow.
On the way back from the horses, The Crow and I stopped off at Mill House Farm in Stoke Mandeville (Aylesbury). Mill House Farm is a family run chicken centre where you can purchase chickens (ones specially bred to lay eggs in a domestic environment), as well as eggs. Even better, for those who would like their own chicken but can’t, for whatever reason, keep them, (if you live within a 10 mile radius of the farm) you can join their rent-a-hen scheme where, on a pre-determined basis you can collect the eggs that your rented hen lays, therefore ensuring you a constant stream of fresh and tasty eggs. Eggsellent! (sorry, couldn’t resist)
