DENVER – December 2015 – The holiday season has arrived, bringing with it unique family traditions, festive celebrations and an assortment of delicious seasonal treats. Holiday baking is a beloved tradition for many families and few holiday dessert recipes are complete without the incredible, edible egg. 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 can be used for most holiday baking recipes,” said Terry Tormohlen, Colorado egg farmer and CEP member. “From eggnog to sugar cookies and Christmas morning casseroles, eggs are essential for many holiday treats. Because eggs contain almost every essential vitamin and mineral the body needs, you can rest assured knowing that you are cooking for your family with healthy, nutritional ingredients this holiday season.”
