Excellent Eggs

Celebrate National egg month in May by brushing up on the history and health benefits of this incredible edible.

BREAK THE FAST: During medieval times, eggs, milk and meat were forbidden during Lent. They were traditionally used to break the fast on Easter Sunday.

GOOD FOR YOU: Research has shown that one egg a day won’t increase the risk of heart disease in healthy adults. Plus, eggs have vitamins B12 and D, Riboflavin and Folate.

DYE DESIGN: Red is the most traditional color for dyeing Easter eggs, and it remains the most common color used today, especially in countries with Orthodox faiths.

ON A ROLL: The first White House Egg Roll took place in 1878 with President Hayes and his wife, Lucy. Today’s youngsters gather on the south lawn the Monday after Easter for this traditional event, which is open to the public.

A NO-FAIL METHOD FOR HARD-BOILED EGGS: Place eggs in a single layer in a large saucepan. Add cold water to cover the eggs by 1 inch. Bring to a rapid boil over high heat. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 15 minutes. For extra large eggs, let stand for 18 minutes. Drain, then place in a bowl with ice and water. When completely cooled,drain. To peel, gently tap eggs on the countertop and roll between the palms of your hands.

HAPPY EASTER FROM SHOPWORNDESIGNS!
