When I sell eggs at the farmers market I have to label them as ‘Ungraded’. The size of my eggs can and does vary, although usually it is not a really significant difference…usually.
About a week ago I found what was probably the largest egg I have found to date. Not surprisingly, it was a double yolker. I also found what was probably the smallest egg I have found to date. It was tiny enough that when I held it in my palm I could close my fist around it. It was smaller than a quail egg! When I cracked it, the yolk was so tiny I almost couldn’t tell it was there!
Here is the largest egg and the smallest egg side by side. I kept these two for myself. I can only imagine what one of my customers would have thought if they opened their box of eggs to find these two. Definitely ungraded!
