Sansa's delight for lemon-egg soup and lemon cakes is obvious in context: citrus fruits such as lemons don't grow in the North, and with medieval system of food transport and preservation being what they are, lemon cakes and lemon-egg soup are actually a relatively expensive delicacy for those living in the North. Dorne in the far south is the only region of the Seven Kingdoms where citrus fruits like lemon grow, distant away from Winterfell.

Lemon Health Benefits

The health benefits of lemons are due to its many beneficial elements like vitamin C, vitamin B, phosphorous, proteins, and carbohydrates. Lemon is a fruit that contains flavonoids, which are composites that contain antioxidant and cancer fighting properties.

Lemons contain numerous phytochemicals, including polyphenols, terpenes, and tannins. As with other citrus fruits, they have significant concentrations of citric acid (about 47 g/l in the juices).

Egg Nutrition

Eggs are a very good source of cheap, high quality protein. Eggs are regarded a complete source of protein as they contain all eight essential amino acids; the ones we cannot synthesize in our bodies and must obtain from our diet.

More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white along with vitamin B2 and lower amounts of fat and cholesterol than the yolk. The whites are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper.

Don't worry about cholesterol. Organizations like the American Heart Association (AHA) allow for regular consumption of eggs in a meal plan. A United Kingdom (UK) scientific research shows that a medium egg contains about 100mg of cholesterol, a third of the 300mg recommended daily limit. Keep in mind that  it is saturated fat in the diet, not dietary cholesterol that influences blood cholesterol levels the most.

If you do decide to consider the addition of eggs to your meal plan, we encourage you to take a close look at your overall diet. Could it use more protein? If so, eggs might make sense.

How to Check If the Eggs You Bought is Still Fresh

1) Did you see the cloudiness of egg whites? The white of a fresh egg is naturally cloudy. you can generally use the cloudiness of the egg white to help verify freshness, with cloudy whites indicating fresh eggs.

2) The egg yolk or egg white may have red or brown fragments in it. These “blood spots” and “meat spots” are harmless bits of tissue and are allowed in commercial Grade B eggs. If they look unappealing, the spots can be removed with a spoon before cooking.

3) If you aren’t sure how old an egg is, you can submerge it in water. A fresh egg will sink in water, a stale one will float. Floaters should either be discarded immediately.

4) Did you observed pinkish egg whites? If the egg white has a pinkish color, it is usually a sign of bacterial contamination, and the bacterium most often involved is Pseudomonas. You should discard eggs if you find pinkish whites inside.

5) The yolk of a chicken egg may be any shade from pale yellow to orange, depending on what the chicken has eaten. The color is usually consistent if hens are fed only one type of feed, but free range chickens or foraging hens and those fed kitchen scraps will often produce a variety of yolk colors.

How to Prevent Eggs from Rotting for Weeks

1) When refrigerating eggs, do not wash them as this can remove their protective coating. Keep them in their original covered container or carton in a so that they do not absorb odors or lose any moisture.

2) Eggs are best stored in the refrigerator where they may remain for up to one month (check the best-before-date on the box).

3) Do not store them in the refrigerator door egg-rack since this exposes them to too much heat each time the refrigerator is opened and closed. Store them using their original container. Make sure to store them with their pointed end facing downward as this will help to prevent the air chamber, and the yolk, from being displaced.


Lemon-Egg Soup Recipe

The modern recipe is essentially a version of the traditional Greek avgolemono (you can get the recipe here click, Awesome Egg and Lemon Soup- Soupa Avgolemono- Greek Food Recipes). The egg is whisked into the soup, giving it a remarkably creamy texture, especially for something without a speck of dairy.


Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes quick
Serves: 3 to 4 awesome people


INGREDIENTS:

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 shallots, thinly sliced
1/2 cup finely chopped carrot
3 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup orzo
Grated zest from 1 lemon
Juice from 1/2 lemon
1 large egg
Chopped parsley for garnish
Ground sumac for garnish (optional)


COOKING PROCEDURE:

1) In a small saucepan, bring the olive oil up to medium heat.

2) Add the shallots and carrot, and cook until the carrot pieces are soft, about 5 minutes, keeping an eye on the shallots so they don’t burn. Set the pan aside.

3) In a medium pot, bring the broth to a boil, then reduce the heat slightly and add the orzo.

4) Let the broth and orzo simmer until the pasta is cooked through but not too soft, around 8 minutes.

5) In a separate bowl, whisk together the lemon zest, juice, and egg until smooth. While whisking furiously, slowly pour a ladle of the hot broth into the lemon and egg mixture; this will cook the egg without scrambling it.

6) Then pour the hot egg mixture into the pot with the broth and pasta, whisking for approximately 30 seconds to combine.

7) Remove the pot from the heat.

8) Ladle the soup into serving bowls, then heap the cooked carrots and shallots on top.

9) Sprinkle with a little parsley for color—and ground sumac for flavor, if desired—and enjoy!

Quick Tips:

You can top this soup with a bit of ground sumac, which is slightly lemony on its own, but with earthier undertones that meld well with the other, simpler flavors present.
