Ode to the Egg Recipes

Creamy and rich, eggs are one of the world’s finest gifts to the cook, as they are delicious served scrambled, poached, whisked or fried. Thus, this week’s delivery is devoted to the glorious egg, and an extra-special one at that, too, with decadent oversize duck eggs to go along with those from our own brood of heritage-breed hens. Also filled with an assortment of egg-friendly pairings—think: organic breakfast sausages from Skagit River Ranch, fresh Challah bread, housemade crème fraîche, and orange marmalade—plus, a bevy of fresh produce like asparagus, pea tendrils and bright citrus, this breakfast-themed box will help you craft the perfect egg.

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:

Preserved Meyer Lemons

Toss these preserved beauties with roasted fingerling potatoes, or whisk the pulp into a salad dressing or a Bloody Mary.

Ingredients:
6 Meyer lemons
⅓ cup kosher salt
⅔ cup fresh lemon juice

Method:
1. Scrub lemons and dry well. Quarter lemons lengthwise.

2. Toss the lemon wedges with the salt in a bowl and transfer to a sterile 4-cup glass jar. Use a wooden spoon to press the lemons to fit. Add lemon juice and any remaining salt that might be left in the bowl. Seal jar tightly and shake to combine. Let stand at room temperature for 3 days, shaking jar each day. Transfer to the refrigerator for 3 weeks or until rinds are soft. Rinse before using.
