Use your favorite pickles in this recipe. Sweet relish and sweet salad cubes are both good options.
What’s the difference between brown and white eggs?
According to bestfoodfacts.org, white eggs are laid by chickens with white feathers and white ear lobes.
Brown eggs are laid by red-feathered chickens with red ear lobes. These chickens are larger in body size than white-feathered chickens. They require more feed which is why brown eggs are more expensive.
There is no nutritional difference between brown and white eggs.
How long does it take for a chicken to lay an egg?
An egg is formed in 24 to 26 hours. The eggshell alone takes 20 hours.
Soon after the chicken lays an egg, its body will release a new yolk for the egg formation process to begin again.
