Farm-fresh eggs

eggs

Hard-boiled, scrambled, baked or fried, eggs deliver on taste and nutrition alike. Each egg is packed with a variety of vitamins and minerals, from protein to selenium, which helps boost immunity.

At PCC, we carry organic and all-natural eggs raised locally in the foothills of Mount Rainier by Stiebrs Farms. Find them in a range of sizes and colors, by-the-dozen or in bulk. For an extra flavor boost, try our fresh duck eggs, with rich yolks and high-protein egg whites that add extra loft to baked goods.

Cook up some magic

From sweet or savory to fancy or down-home, there are endless ways to enjoy eggs. They’re the magical ingredient that holds together baked goods and sauces; the secret to the lightness of mousses and soufflés; and the star in quiches, frittatas, crepes and other breakfast favorites.

Making perfect hard-boiled eggs

The key to making perfect hard-boiled eggs is ... to not boil them! Instead, put the eggs in your pot, and fill the pot with cold water. Bring to a boil, then immediately reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Remove the eggs from the water and place them in a bowl of ice water for another 5 to 10 minutes.

This method will ensure the egg yolk remains bright yellow (not edged in green) and that the eggs smell good.

A tradition of quality

Stiebrs Farms supplies PCC with fresh, local, organic and all-natural eggs. Raising egg-laying hens has been a family tradition dating back to 1953.

Eggs are gathered by hand and the hens are fed farm-grown feed from the farm's own feed mill. Never caged, they live in clean, well-lit, roomy barns and are free to run, preen and socialize outdoors as they wish. Stiebrs is certified humane by Humane Farm Animal Care.
