Eggs !!..do they all taste kind of the same ?
« Reply #25 on: 25/04/2007 14:02:15 »
When me dad used to keep chickens the taste and colour of the egg yolk seemed to depend on what the chicken had eaten and I think free range eggs have a better taste than battery farmed ones.

Now, my snake has taken to her nesting box and should be due to lay her eggs this weekend. This a photo of one of her clutches from last year and you can see the cuts made in the leathery shells.

...and ofcourse fish eggs are regularly eaten (cod roe if you are a cheapskate, or caviar if you can afford it).

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

Here is a man who has tasted in the realms of the upper echelons of society...pray...impart to us the tasty goodness of posh fish eggs !!

As you say, when you check the link, there is quite a bit of discussion as to whether the sale of the eggs is indeed legal.

If was clearly taken in low light, but it could also be that there was a short depth of field, and some parts of the photo are out of focus, as well as slightly shaken.
