Keepingafewhensonyourplot is another way to supplement your weekly shop with delicious free-range eggs. However, there will be times when your hens produce more than you can eat and you may give some away to family and friends. Here are some tips to make sure that you all stay safe and the eggs are good to eat.
• Wipebutdonotwashyour eggs; this is to prevent bacteria entering the shell
• Storeinthefridgeawayfrom strong smelling foods
• Ifstoredoutofthefridge, the temperature should be constant and below 20°C.
• Commercialeggshavea‘best before’ date of no more than
28 days after they are laid.
So, aim to use your home- produced eggs within that time. After this date, the quality of the egg will deteriorate and if any Salmonella bacteria are present, they could multiply to high levels and make you ill.
