“According to superstition, empty egg-shells should always be broken up -- lest witches make boats thereof.”
Dorothy Hartley (1892-1985)
“Another article of cuisine that offends the bowels of unused Britons is garlic. Not uncommonly in southern climes an egg with a shell on is the only procurable animal food without garlic in it. Flatulence and looseness are the frequent results.”
Dr. T. K. Chambers
‘A Manuel of Diet In Health and Disease’ (1875)
“Oh eggs within thine oval shell, What palate tickling joys do dwell.”
