Produce of the week: Pullet Eggs from Purton House Organics

You may have heard our Ben talking to Jamie and Jimmy about them on their Friday Night Feast earlier in the year. These are the first eggs laid by hens at about 18 weeks of age. The smaller size of pullet eggs only last about 4 weeks before the they get bigger. These smaller eggs are amazing and have a large yolk to white ratio, they hold together beautifully in the pan so are incredible for poaching and frying.
