What the heck are shirred egg anyway?
In case you are wondering what shirred egg are, well, they are eggs baked in either cream or butter (or both) in a small ramekin until the whites are firm and the yolks are runny.
Ever wonder what it would be like to go out and gather your own fresh eggs every morning. I remember as a kid going to my grandfather’s sister’s house where my mother and grandmother would buy their fresh milk, butter and eggs and my sister and I would go out into the hen house and gather a few eggs. I don’t remember lifting the chickens up and I’m sure we would have just shooed them off their nest to get to the eggs.
When we were back home a few weeks ago, a friend was telling me about her granddaughter, Hannah’s, interest in raising chickens. She has names for all her chickens and she actually sells their eggs to local residents. I checked out her website and it was so cute and I think you might enjoy visiting her site at https://hannahshappyhens.com. Here is her old site that has some cute pictures of her chickens. https://hannahshappyhens.blogspot.com Way to go Hannah.
