Rose, I was reading your comments about the egg yolks getting smaller. Since I raise laying hens, I was curious what the egg yolks from my hens would weigh. Here's what I found: Randomly picking 3 eggs from the refrigerator, I found that 3 egg yolks weighed 2 1/4 ounces or 66 grams; 3 egg whites weighed 4 3/4 ounces or 135 grams. I weighed the eggs that were just laid this morning, and 10 eggs in the shell weighed 24 1/4 ounces.
By the way, my hens are what I guess you would call "free range." They have a large fenced area they can run around in, scratching the ground, etc.
Just thought you might find this information interesting. I might pass your comments about smaller egg yolks on to the State Poultry Extension Agent and hear what he has to say.
thank you very much for pursuing this. i’d be very interested to know what the extension agent will say!
Congratulations! I love this new Blog as you call it and have signed up for the monthly newsletter. Just wanted to say "Hello" from North Carolina. I am so looking forward to your new cake book! You are the best ever teacher and because of you, I continue to be enthused about baking and trying new things. Always your friend. Pat
you southerners are the BEST. when i was in memphis filming a segment for the shop at home show i bought a great tee shirt that said southern girl on it. i figured that living in southern manhattan would make me qualify but no one has even questioned it!
thanks for your encouragement. i’m really enjoying working on the new cake book.
Thank you very much for this web site.
This morning when i read that you are writing another book i felt that i am over the moon
I bought all your books, and all my baking and cooking is from them .
You are a very great and special person.G-D bless you.
Could you please tell me when the book will be avaliable .?
I live in the U.K, but i always buy all the books from AMAZON .Com, i checked there today but i couldnot find any thing mentioned.
Waiting for your reply
Thank you in advance
i’m afraid it won’t be til 2008 or possibly even 2009 as a comprehensive cake book takes lots of time, especially since i plan to picture every cake. but once it’s finished you will have years worth of fun new baking experiences as i’m having with it now!
