After being asked to participate in the Egg Farmers of Ontario’s World Egg Month promotion I’ve done some more reading about this food staple that I think a lot of us take for granted. I’m working some posts on the topic but in the meantime you can read my French toast post and today I have a giveaway contest.
I’d like to spread the love (and the reading) around a bit and have a $50 gift certificate courtesy of Egg Farmers of Ontario good at any Chez Cora restaurant to give away.
Head over to the EFO’s web site and do some clicking around and find a fun fact on the different types of eggs. Post a comment with a brief summary of the differences between conventional, free run, and free range eggs. A winner will be randomly selected from the correct answers.
To provide some context and extra information for all of us I’d like to add a dimension here. The next time you’re at the grocery store take a look at the prices for large conventional, free run, and free range eggs and include this information in your comment. (For this experiment be sure to disregard Omega-3 or other vitamin-enriched eggs, the “double-yolk” eggs, and eggs in graded sizes other than large.)
If you buy your eggs at a farmers’ market, not to worry just let us know what the going price is, what class they fit into and whether they’re certified organic.
Obviously, this informal field research will take a bit of time so this contest will be open until 5 PM eastern next Wednesday, November 2. I’ll randomly draw the winner from qualifying comments and post the result by noon the next day.
