Double prizes are the best
Now that egg prices are so high I limit my use of this food and my last dozen lasted a few weeks longer than usual. I purchased more eggs over the weekend and this morning I decided to have one with my vegan burger for breakfast. Imagine my surprise when I found the egg had two yolks inside. I do not recall having this happen since I was a little girl and I felt as if I had hit some type of jackpot and that there was a meaning behind what had just taken place. I thought of the prizes in Cracker Jack boxes during the 1960s and 1970s when you would get a ring or another really great prize. I felt like Charlie in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory when he found the last golden ticket. The chance of finding a double yolk is one in 1,000 but I'm certain I've cracked open more than 1,000 eggs since the last time I saw a double yolk. When an egg yields double yolks it's because when the hen ovulates she has fertilized two eggs in quick succession and one shell covers them rather than there being two separate eggs I felt really special to see this rarity today and decided to investigate the meaning behind this unusual phenomenon.
Does it mean anything specific to find a double egg yolk?
If nothing else comes from my finding two yolks in one egg I feel blessed just to have been witness to this oddity of nature. To know it's real and see it with my own eyes is enough for me because when I shared this on Facebook some people posted that they had never seen two yolks in one egg, but if this brings something better my way I am all for receiving it. In Chinese folklore as well as Islam finding a double egg yolk is said to indicate good luck, increased finances, and good fortune coming your way. In some cultures two yolks in one egg suggest fertility and that a woman of childbearing age may be going to have a baby or possibly twins. In other cultures this signifies new life new beginning or death coming soon. In Christianity, a dual yoke symbolizes the dual nature of Christ as both God and man. Two eggs in one yolk are said to symbolize something better coming and I imagine in churches where prosperity is taught people will believe it is a sign of a double blessing.coming their way.
Are you special if you find a twin egg yolk?
Finding a double egg yolk is said to indicate you are special and blessings will be headed your way. I can't speak for anyone else but when I saw the two yolks I felt as I did when as a teenager I would find a four-leaf clover in my front yard and place it in the Bible for good luck There are those who suggest that finding two yolks in one egg is a sign of a new beginning a change in your life and say that good things are about to happen like prosperity and abundance and that it is not just associated with money.
Is it safe to eat a double egg yolk?
Yes, it's safe to eat a double egg yolk and I am a witness because I have lived to write about it and the eggs tasted as good as always.
"For a long time, double-yolked eggs have been considered the black sheep, if you will, of the egg world. When eggs are being processed, they go through a step called candling, during which they're examined under a light and checked for defects. Double-yolkers usually get pulled out at that point and not sold along with the normal eggs. But they've been enjoying a little bump in popularity, perhaps because people are becoming a bit less averse to cholesterol"
There also might be more double egg yolks right now because since Covid-19 there has been a decrease in the general workforce adn perhaps there are nto enough hands on deck to pull the double yokers or one could have slipped by inspection.
