    Have an ice cream recipe that requests eggs not cooked. I kind of 'chickened-out' and bought a store bought container of liqufied pasteurized eggs. Any of you out there used your hens eggs in a 'raw' recipe like this one?

    Part of me is figuring that my hens (who are very well cared for and have a lot of clean open space) are raised under infinitely more sanitary conditions that the average commercial facility; so in reality, the eggs should be okay to use in a recipe like the one I just mentioned you think???

    I think that if it makes you nervous you shouldn't do it ...but, having said that, I can honestly tell you that I don't hesitate to eat my own eggs raw. I make an eggnog shake kind of thing for breakfast 3 or 4 days a week and include 1 or 2 of my own backyard laid raw eggs in it and have never had an issue. Just my .02 cents

    Many thanks! No, it didn't make me nervous, but I didn't know. Come to think of it when I was younger I made protein shakes with raw eggs and now I'm over 50, so it must have worked out okay and those were commercially raised eggs.

    Okay! I know what I will do next time! :)
