Eggs are, without a doubt, an essential part of the Pinoy diet. Not sure what to eat for breakfast? Cook silog. Eat it alone or add any type of meat to conclude the triple food portmanteau. Thinking of lunch or dinner? Fix up a variation of torta — ampalaya, talong, kalabasa or giniling would do.
If eggs are as important to you as the majority of Filipinos, then you should definitely not be taking them for granted. Now, here’s a question you might’ve not thought about before: What’s the best way to store eggs?
Experts suggest that the best way to store eggs is by keeping them in their original cartons. However, it’s not advisable to reuse these cartons; so if you’re buying single pieces that don’t come in cartons, it’s best that you store them in a wire egg basket. The open design of this type allows continuous airflow for the eggs; they also protect them from rolling around and breaking.
Now that you know that, let us introduce you to the next online purchase you won’t regret. Meet this chicken wire egg basket — the cutest you’ll ever see!
