Hey Gang- I need some feedback. While a friend was over, I went to collect eggs. When I went to put them away he asked, "Aren't you going to wash them first?" I shrugged and said, "I only wash them if they have poop or blood on them..." He turned green under the gills and said, "but, they come out of a hen's *you know what*!" (nice image, huh?) I told him that IF I were selling eggs, I would wash them, regardless. It would make them look more umm, marketable but, since I am not! I figured..."what's the point!" The eggs I put away (that he wanted me to wash) were CLEAN! I mean, other than the fact that I had just brought them in...you just couldn't/wouldn't be able to tell. :| Is this wrong? I wonder how many folks on here wash their eggs ALWAYS and how many do it like I do? I told him I would check on here and let him know...(he rolled his eyes but, here I am!) If you tell me I'm to wash them ALL the time...I'll do it from now on! Peace- Pedro PS I told him I had read somewhere that washing the eggs breaks down something in them that makes them NOT be fresher longer. Or some such? Am I just full of hot air? Or is this somewhat accurate?
