Believe it or not, the holiday season is upon us! For many, this time of year means festive family gatherings, unique traditions and of course, all types of holiday treats. Holiday baking is a favorite tradition for many families and the incredible, edible egg is a central ingredient in nearly every dessert recipe. The Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association would like to share some helpful tips for baking at high altitude, a problem many Coloradans face during the holiday season.
“Locally produced eggs from Colorado can be used in holiday baking recipes,” said Chef Jason Morse, CEP partner and owner of 5280 Culinary, LLC. “From gingerbread cookies to eggnog to Christmas morning casseroles, eggs are very versatile and contain almost every essential vitamin and mineral the body needs. Including eggs in your holiday baking means your family is eating healthy, nutritional ingredients.”
