Egg Trivia - They Really ARE Incredible

Unread post by Farmfresh » Thu Apr 26, 2018 7:11 pm

Egg History:

* Europe has had domesticated chickens since 600 BC.
* Chickens came to the New World with Columbus on his second expedition in 1493.
* Eggs have been colored, blessed, exchanged and eaten as part of the rites of spring since ancient times. Long before Christians began celebrating Easter.
* In France new brides often break an egg on the threshold of their new home before stepping in - to bring luck and healthy babies.
* At the time of the French Revolution (1789), the French already knew 685 different ways to cook an egg... including the omelet.
* Before World War II most chickens were kept to lay eggs. Very few were sold as meat birds.

That brought back old brain cells. I used to have the egg parts memorized back in high school. I still look at a hard boiled egg with a scientific eye.
