I know this subject has been broached before, but I would like some current opinions on the subject of cleaning eggs.
I sell my eggs. I have regular customers who purchase a couple dozen each week. Most of the time my eggs are pristine - not a spot or fleck on them. However, when it rains or the ducks have been especially busy in the pools, sometimes the girls get stuff on their feet and drag it into the nest boxes.
I would NEVER sell an egg that I wouldn't eat, but that being said, I try to keep the ones that have any blemishes on them and sell the immaculate ones to my customers. I never wash my eggs and they have never seen the inside of a fridge. I explain the whole egg process to my customers as well, and most don't chill the eggs now, either.
I was thinking of getting the egg wipes and putting 1 or two in the dozens that have some eggs that may be marred because of my diligence in selling the pure eggs, I have quite a stock pile of them. I'm currently looking at 11 18 packs and hate them to go to waste.
So, if you were in my shoes, would you do this, too? I only charge $2.50 for my eggs and almost all my customers return the cartons. The Farmer's Market in our County all sell $5-6 a dozen, so my customers are loyal and know they are getting a good deal, but not used to seeing anything but clean-clean shells.
What say you follow eggers? Would you buy these wipes and distribute or what? These are mostly city people and I don't want to loose the clients, but I don't want to keep stockpiling the eggs that I think they may be less interested in.
