Seeing is believing

Eggs FlorentineIf you are 60 or younger, you may not know what butter and eggs are supposed to look like. When chickens and cows are raised on pasture—their natural environment—their products have a rich golden color that you don't find in products from factory-raised animals. (The color comes from all of the carotene they get from the grass.)

The Eggs Florentine in this picture were made from eggs from pastured hens and butter from grassfed cows. Ask your parents or grandparents if they remember eggs and butter being this brightly colored.
