Double yoke

In America, people favor the white to the yoke. But, I have always preferred the yoke. So, too, do Palestinians. My grocer, Fayaq, sells double-yoke eggs for just a fraction more than the price of regular eggs. It seems like a good deal to me. I’ve never seen double-yoke eggs before, but Fayaq speaks of them as if they are quite normal. “They’re twins,” he tells me. I’m not sure how he knows which eggs are double-yokes, but he does. I buy a half-carton of double-yoke eggs – or 15 eggs – for 12 shekels. That’s 30 yokes for less than $3.

There's no doubt in my mind, that if I had a blog, no matter the nominal topic, half the posts would be devoted to eggs.
