Valley Bounty: Eggs

As anyone with a backyard flock knows, with the increasing daylight comes an increase in egg production. Eggs make for a wonderful, protein-rich meal any time of day! Hard boil some to slice on salad, try your hand at a savory quiche, a frittata with greens, or pickle some for later (in my family, we pickle eggs with beets so they turn a beautiful burgundy by Easter).

Find local egg producers here and a winter farmers’ market near you here.

I couldn’t pick just one recipe to highlight, so check the Happy Valley Locavore’s blog for mouth watering recipes for easy to follow instructions here.

An easy pickled eggs and beets can be found here.
