I was asked in an email why I bought shop bought meringues yesterday when I have my own chickens and thus lots of eggs.
Well firstly at the moment we don't have lots of eggs, last week five of the girls were broody and now three different ones are. It's a full time job trying to cool them down by taking them out of the nesting boxes and cooling off the henhouse (they go broody when both their and the outside temperature rises). So we are just about keeping up with our regular orders.
Secondly, I have not been making anything that requires just egg yolks or I would have frozen some whites until I had enough to whip up a batch of meringues.
Thirdly and finally these were a real bargain at just £2 for two packs and as we don't eat them very often will last us for ages, thus freeing up any eggs that we do get for making something else of slightly more nutritional value.
