Anyway, this post will not be going how I would have liked as I uploaded my videos to Vimeo, but Weebly does not play with Vimeo from my limited attention span. So I will be linking to the Vimeo videos and you will have to click and watch yourself. Also, something ate my organic egg video. Not a problem, since they are dead to us now as the most expensive egg with apparently no redeeming value other than a government certification that decrees them to be special. As Joel Salatin says - Thank you US-Duh! (i.e. USDA).
Now the main event! Feel free to watch at your leisure . . . or now. Now is good.
Note to PETA - Many eggs were harmed in the making of these videos and this blog. I cracked them with authority and meticulously introduced them to the inferno that was a hot cast iron skillet. Just so you know
COMPARISON #6 - COOKED EGG
Dandelion Hills Egg
Again, I do not think we are missing anything without the organic egg. Regarding this process, some things that stand out: The runny yolk of the standard egg, not appetizing to me in comparison to the other two. The orangeness of the Dandelion Hills egg and the viscosity is apparent and seems to be better than the Free-Range egg, which is still a good egg in these categories. Nice yolk, nice color. Overall, not bad.
CONCLUSION - Dandelion Hills appears to win out over the free-range eggs, but not by much. Standard eggs are just that, standard eggs - runny yolks and no redeeming value outside of price.
Outside of the videos, a short one today. Tomorrow I will summarize the conclusions and give an overview of the EGGSperiment. While I hoped to have done more, the inclined plane experiment was not very helpful as all eggs broke. Weight of egg, weight of shell, and weight of inner egg did not give me much either. Especially considering the fact that the other eggs were graded and sized and our eggs were not.
Also, some of you may have heard the Avian Flu epidemic that has led to the massive culling of millions of birds in the Midwest. This link demonstrates the dangers of CAFOs and big operations.
In case you missed the rest of the EGGSperiment series:
