Show Winning Duck Eggs & Guinea Fowl Eggs

Our village produce show has just celebrated it’s 20th year which is a great achievement for a small village.

Each year the committee members (me being one of them) look at the categories and make slight changes to the programme and a couple of years ago I suggested an egg category. Since it’s addition to the show, the egg category has been hotly contested. I am yet to win although have won secondand third places in the past with my guinea fowl and leghorn hen eggs.

This year I entered some guinea fowl eggs and khaki campbell duck eggs and was delighted to get second and third place. Roll on next year, the contest is still on to the win first place!

Have you ever entered eggs for a produce show?

Baking For The Produce Show

Well I have just spent the afternoon baking for the porduce show and have to say that I don’t think I have any prize winners.

I have made a victoria sponge, butterfly buns, cheese scones and fruit scones. Everyone of them has had a disaster. The victoria sponge is as flat as a pancake, the butterfly buns have sunk, the cheese scones are very thin and the fruit scones I forgot to glaze with beaten egg so look abit pale!

The produce show is tomorrow and I am on the committee so like to make an effort and usually manage to grab a trophy as well but don’t think I will this year. Will let you know how I get on. Off to sort my eggs for the egg category which is hotly contested!!
