Colorado Egg Producers serve up high altitude baking tips for the Holidays

Monday, December 17, 2012

Do you ever wonder what makes this season the most wonderful time of the year? The Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association suspects the delectable sweets we suddenly find ourselves surrounded by play a role. Sugar cookies, gingerbread, cheesecake – take your pick or eat them all! Preparing and eating holiday desserts is an enjoyable activity for many each holiday season, including this one. However, baking in the high altitude that most Coloradans love can be a challenge for your cookies and cakes. CEP understands this dilemma, and is here to help with some high-altitude baking tips. Don’t forget to stock up on locally produced Colorado eggs, as they’re typically a crucial part of the baking process.

CEP, a membership organization representing seven farms, wants everyone to get the most out of the holiday baking season. In Colorado it’s especially important to keep our high altitude in mind. Here are a few tips courtesy of joyofbaking.com, baking911.com and ochef.com:

Colorado egg farmers recognize the importance of giving back this Thanksgiving

Friday, November 16, 2012

Thanksgiving is a holiday many Coloradans cherish for a variety of reasons. Whether you look forward to spending quality time with your family, cheering on your favorite football team, watching the floats on display during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, or enjoying a home-cooked meal, everyone has a reason for celebrating Thanksgiving. This time of year, the Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association encourages everyone to take a moment and reflect on the good fortune in their lives. A loving family, great friends, memorable experiences, and, in CEP’s opinion, delicious food, are all reasons to be grateful.

CEP, a membership organization representing seven farms, recognizes that not all members of our Colorado family will have enough to eat during this holiday season. CEP is committed to doing what’s right for the Colorado community, as illustrated by their regular donation of thousands of eggs to food banks throughout the state. Egg farmers throughout Colorado have an unwavering mission to provide high-quality eggs to Coloradans.

Buy local year round and support Colorado egg farmers

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

Palisade peaches, Rocky Ford melons and Olathe sweet corn are just a few of the locally produced fruits and vegetables that have been tickling our taste buds this season. The Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association, a membership organization representing seven farms, would like to remind you that in addition to seasonal fruits and vegetables, there are main food staples – including eggs – which you can buy locally and enjoy all year round.

“Thinking about where your food comes and buying locally is certainly top of mind for everyone today,” explained Jerry Wilkins, president of CEP. “This is the perfect time and the ideal season to celebrate the bounty of Colorado agriculture available at grocery stores, farmers’ markets and restaurants across the state. Colorado eggs are a wonderful example. When you purchase Colorado food and agricultural products, such as eggs, you are not only getting high quality fresh products, you are also supporting Colorado's farmers, ranchers, processors and the state economy.”

Beyond breakfast: eggs for lunch, dinner, snacks and more

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

It’s no secret that eggs are traditionally served as part of a well-rounded breakfast. They’re scrambled, boiled and poached to perfection as the ideal match for bacon and toast on countless plates every morning. The Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association would like to remind you that eggs are also a delicious choice for lunch, dinner and snacks – and are a healthier alternative to calorie-laden meal options like burgers and fries.

“Eggs are one of the most versatile foods to cook with, in addition to being one of the most nutritious,” said Mike O’Connor, a Colorado farmer and CEP member. “They’re typically viewed as a breakfast item, but they’re perfect for any meal or snack of the day. If you’re looking for a substitute for meat, eggs are one of the highest-quality proteins available.”
