Eggs !!..do they all taste kind of the same ?
« on: 24/04/2007 19:26:58 »
Eggs are great...scrambled, boiled, sunny side up, poached, smashed on wifeys head !!..LOL

The only eggs I have eaten are Chicky eggs (and Easter Eggs)....(and quail eggs but these were cold and hard boiled and I can't remember)...but do eggs from other birds like, duckies, goosies, Ostriches etc...all share the same kind of flavour.?...what about turtle eggs, crocky eggs etc...anybody tasted them ? 


Your eggsellent comments will be all white by me..no yolk !!...*groan*

I have had duck eggs and think they are ok, but they seem richer then chicken eggs.. My parents used to collect them nd eat them also. I haven't had one in years but I do not eat eggs hardly ever these days!

Reptile eggs have leathery skins rather than hard shells (reptiles don't have beaks, so they could not break out of a hard shell, but they have teeth and claws with which to cut their and tear their way out of a leathery shell.

In any case, I cannot think of a reptile whole eggs might legally be eaten (most are endangered species).  Maybe some amphibian eggs (such as frogs eggs); and ofcourse fish eggs are regularly eaten (cod roe if you are a cheapskate, or caviar if you can afford it).  Possibly somebody eats insects eggs, but they would not exactly be filling.

Thanks  George...i left out roe cos it's well...a slightly different thing altogether ...(though I know technically they are eggs etc etc...but you know what i mean yes ?)

There may be a member who has survived on a desert island an feasted on turtle eggs ?...I think the chances are good !!  ::)

Hmm.. I've seen on tv, where people ate ostrich eggs raw.. They are massive! About half the size of an adult's head! They just drank it with a straw.. They said it was yucky! LOL

Ofcourse they are different - but why would you assume that crocodile eggs were more like chicken eggs than fish eggs (size apart - they have little to do with either, except insofar as all eggs perform a similar function)?

well...they're similar sized...have a white shell and (jumping to conclusions mode) I assume they have a yolk and albumen...which is nice !!...........don't they ?

..........last time I had a crate of Beluga caviar I don't recall being able to make meringues !!

Lumpfish roe makes a passable impersonation of caviar & it's a hell of a lot cheaper.

Not all eggs, not even all chicken eggs, have a white shell.

I suspect that all eggs, even fish eggs, have an albumen and yolk, but on a smaller scale, and you simply did not have the right tools to separate them.
