An Egg-celant Day

By Sarah Correll

October 11 is World Egg Day!

Indiana farmers- including Bob from Berne, Indiana- care for over 23 million laying hens.

Mentone, Indiana is the self-proclaimed “Egg Basket of the Midwest.” They hold an egg festival every June.

Did you know that stale eggs float in water, while fresh eggs sink? This is because all eggs contain an air cell that gets larger as the egg ages.

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Nutritionally, nothing. They are just laid by different breeds of chickens.

Traditionally the number of folds in chefs’ hats represented the number of ways they knew how to cook an egg. Add some folds to yours with these recipes!
