Hello Sunshine

March 29th, 2016

Mama Duck started laying again, she’s a Muscovy, so she lays like a goose, only in spring and summer. She started laying two weeks ago and I’ve been saving her eggs. I will let her sit this year and raise up a clutch, but we just separated out the other breed of duck, so I need to collect her eggs for 30 days.
Lucky me, this means beautiful muscovy eggs. These eggs are AMAZING, the yolks are HUGE. I wait for these egs all year long and always hoard these beauties to make custard, the first batch was made last night.

What food item do you look forward to all year long?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
