Do you know where your eggs come from?

I do!

Most of egg packages here in Switzerland have a code printed on the inside. Our eggs this week happen to come from the nearby town of Neftenbach. We went there recently for their annual festival, and 800th year anniversary of the town. I can also tell you that my eggs came from a guy named Beat Möckli.

Also, eggs aren’t really sold as brown or white – it’s whatever is available is what you get. There are generally only two sizes of eggs, too. You can get ones that are above 53 g or below.   The smaller ones are less expensive, but man, are they tiny! And overall, eggs are nearly twice as much as eggs bought in Texas.

There is one thing that I don’t understand about eggs. The egg tray that was provided for us only holds nine eggs – Swiss eggs are sold 10 to a carton.

See? I have to put the extra egg up on the side. So strange.
