Pastured Eggs from Hector's Honey (Fulton/Santa Rosa)

I've posted about the honey, and even the milperos (tiny tomatillos) from Hector's Honey sold at various farmers market or at the Fulton farm. I've bought garlic too. Last Saturday we tried the eggs, purchased at the Santa Rosa farmers market. Pretty in shades of brown and Araucana blue, they're $7 per dozen. Definitely on the steep side, and mostly medium size with a couple larges and one jumbo size, to my eye. But all cost issues were forgotten once we cracked them open and had a chance to taste them. The yolks are a deep red-orange. I used some to make a bread pudding, and whisk as I might, i couldn't fully break up the yolks, they were so thick. The resulting custard was a deep saffron yellow color, so beautiful and even more delicious to eat.
