  • Cleaning eggs straight from the farm?

    I received some eggs from a friend who raises free range chickens. They told me I should probably clean them before eating just in case there is anything yucky left behind by the chickens.

    Googling didn't help much but I know it's important to maintain the integrity of the cuticle.

    Anyone know the best way to go about this?

    If there's no visible poo on them, they're probably clean. When they're laid, they have a coating on them that seals out everything.

      And don't clean them until you're about to eat them. Once you wash off the coating the egg can rot.

        They come out of the same hole that poo comes out. A quick wash before you crack them ought to do the trick, but even if you don't do that, if you cook the eggs it'll kill enough lingering germs. But don't listen to me because I believe in slightly poor hygiene for hormetic effects.

          What?! Any proof behind that?
