Eggs are Powerful Symbols at Passover

 

RoastedEggs

When Passover begins tomorrow, families all over the world will gather for a Seder, or ritual meal. No matter what’s served, eggs are always on the table as powerful symbolic foods.

Many families dip hard-boiled eggs in salt water, to commemorate the tears and sweat of their ancestors’ enslavement in Egypt. And a hard-boiled egg, usually roasted, is placed on the Seder plate—its roundness suggesting the cycle of life, rebirth, and renewal. Its burnt, sometimes cracked shell is also a reminder of ancient sacrificial offerings.

If you’re roasting one of our organic eggs, you’ll find its brown color is striking. Just hard-boil the egg first, and place in a 350°F oven until it starts getting a burnt, cracked look—about 15-20 minutes.
All of us at Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs wish you a warm, healthy Passover. Chag Sameach!

Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs not affected by egg recall!

Over 200 million eggs have been recalled recently by another company due to a concern over Salmonella stemming from a single Rose Acre Farms location in North Carolina.

None of our eggs are part of this recall as we would never produce eggs on a factory farm of that size or style. If you’re concerned about eggs you purchased recently, see what brands have been recalled.

Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs are produced responsibly and safely on small family farms. Learn more about why our eggs are different.
