Hen eggs or duck eggs.

Post by Sean Ph'lib on Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:43 am

I believe that,  by and large,  for some reason townsfolk don't normally eat duck eggs.  I wonder what's the story from people who know better.  If you had to chose only one or the other, which would you go for: hen eggs or duck eggs?  I love both but, faced with the choice,  for me it would have to be duck eggs.

Your up early Sean. Duck eggs sell well at the mart but there are only a few doz available each week. These are snapped up by regulars who give out if we are sold out. We charge 5 euro a doz.

Yep up early is right! Had to get a few jobs done before getting ready for an early golf game down in Kenmare. Pretty tired now, but no stopping till the ducks go in at around 9.30. Won't need any sleeping pills, that's for sure!

I would have to choose the hen eggs over duck eggs but my personal preference for eggs has to be the quails.

I've never eaten a quail's egg. I'm guessing you'd want at least half a dozen together. Are they strong or mild?

They are not strong. I would say they are half way between hen and duck. They have a large yolk for there size. I like them fried and have 6 at a time in rolls. You would struggle to make them into an omelette that's for sure. They boil in 2 and a half minutes so a quick snack

Give me a duck egg anytime over a hens one as I love to see and eat a big yoke off the pan, and the colour of the yoke is more appealing to me.
