Eggs are a great source of protein and many nutrients. One egg contains 13 essential nutrients and only 70 calories. At only 17 cents per serving, eggs are also the least expensive source of high quality protein with only 0.6g of carbohydrates.

Eggs also contribute important vitamins and minerals such as vitamin D, phosphorus & vitamin A. Choline and Lutein are also provided by eggs, crucial for memory, cognition, eye and brain health.

Eggs are typically thought of as a breakfast staple, but can be made in many ways! Check out all of our recipes here for not only new and exciting dishes, but all of the delicious classics too!

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.
