Friday 11 October is World Egg Day and Novus will once again join in this annual celebration of eggs, sponsoring events all around the world that are designed to promote the health and nutritional benefits of eggs.

The celebration of World Egg Day aligns perfectly with Novus's vision to help feed the world affordable, wholesome food and achieve a higher quality of life.

"We look forward to this annual opportunity to work with the International Egg Commission, as well as egg producers and organizations on both a local and global level, to promote the positive benefits that eggs have to offer," noted Michael Whitmer, Poultry Marketing Manager at Novus. "Eggs are the most affordable, protein-rich and efficient source of nutrition available and World Egg Day provides the perfect forum to promote this important message."

Novus has several activities planned to help celebrate World Egg Day including:

  • St. Louis, Mo., US – Novus will be at Becky-David Elementary in St. Charles, Mo. to share information and facts about the nutritious benefits of eggs with approximately 900 students.

Rose AcreTM Recipe of the Month

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream        
          
Ingredients:
  • 3 cups whole milk

  • 3 cups heavy cream

  • 9 large egg yolks

  • ½ vanilla bean

  • 2 cups sugar

Instructions:
  1. Separate the egg yolks from the whites.
  2. In a large saucepan combine the sugar and milk. Over medium-low heat, stir to combine. Make sure that the mixture does not come to a boil.
  3. Cut the vanilla bean in half and scrape out one half of the vanilla caviar into milk and sugar mixture. Add half of the entire bean to the mixture. Continue to stir. Heat until hot, but not boiling.
  4. Add the yolks to a large bowl and whisk for 2 minutes until light in color.
  5. Temper the eggs- add a couple ladles of the hot milk mixture to the eggs. You do this so the eggs are not scrambled in the hot milk. Once the eggs are tempered, slowly stir them into the hot milk. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until the mixture begins to thicken.
  6. Using a fine mesh strainer, strain the mixture into a large glass bowl. Discard any lumps.
  7. Slowly stir in the heavy cream
  8. Follow your ice cream makers instructions for preparation.
  9. Ice cream may still be soft after churning, put in freezer for 3-4 hours before serving.
