The Shock of the Yellow

I know, I know, another blurry photograph, but it's not about the clarity, it's about the astonishing color!

We bought this egg from the Marin Sun Farms store on the road between Olema and Point Reyes Station a week or so ago when we drove out on a lovely sunny Saturday to poke through the waning farmer's market and the little shops in town. When I cracked it open this morning, the deep yellow of the yolk was literally shocking - I have never seen one so yellow!

Wish I could report on the superior taste but all I needed was a bit of the white to color up the crust I was making for my pear and apple croustade, so we'll have to wait to hear about that, but isn't the color alone delicious?

Anonymous, she came through the surgery well and I actually talked to her yesterday. She's tired and a little shaky but fine! Thanks for asking.

DMM, oh, yes, oozy envy, indeed! And you can get the chicken poop for your garden, lucky you!

Brilliant that you chose a purple dish to photo it on.

Cookiecrumb, that was total serendipity - just used that bowl to separate the egg - but a great result, no?

Mrs. I, keep looking for free-range eggs and I expect you will find them near you!
