Eggs

Have you ever wondered why egg whites might be cloudy? The white of a very fresh egg contains dissolved carbon dioxide, which gives it a cloudy appearance. Some eggs have more; some less. As the egg ages, the carbon dioxide escapes, so that the white becomes more transparent. A transparent white does not indicate a problem, as an egg that has been stored in a refrigerator is almost certain to be fresh for three to five weeks after it has been packed.

Farm fresh eggs are really fresh! They may have been laid just this morning. As such, they require a little more time when cooking. For hard or soft boiling, add two minutes to your cook time. For peeling ease, crack and peel eggs under cold water.
