Abundance of Spring

MyGirl whipped the egg yolks with maple syrup and cream, then poured it into glass bowls which were set in a hot water bath in the oven.

With spring comes abundance. The extra sunshines brings extra eggs. Chickens lay more eggs when there is more daylight. With warmer temperatures comes rising tree sap and maple syrup. And with rain comes more grass and thus the cows give us extra milk and cream. Our cup runneth over- literally! The refrigerator is stocked with a gallon of fresh maple syrup and 4 dozen un-spoken-for eggs and an extra 1/2 gallon of cream. What to do? MyGirl made creme brûlée!
