Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

November 8, 2012

Eggs are an inexpensive and nutritious source of protein. Buying eggs from pastured hens gives you vibrant eggs yolks, especially in spring when their diet includes new green grass.

Eater’s Tip: Hard boiled eggs are very versatile. In the morning, slice on a piece of sprouted toast. Add to salads or sandwiches. Or eat as a snack sprinkled with a little sea salt.
