Turkey Egg

Recommended Posts

Went to the Sat. market to pick up a pork belly and some eggs. The vendor gave me a couple of these. I had no idea what they were until he told me.

The bacon is on to cure and later this coming week I'll smoke it. :)

In the meantime I just had to try the turkey egg.

The shell was hard almost had to hit it with the cleaver.:shock:

I really couldn't tell the difference when it was cracked open in appearance or flavour after cooking it.

Never had a turkey egg (or seen one) before. I've had duck and quail eggs and other than size, there's not a lot of difference in taste/texture. Supposedly duck eggs are "richer" - whatever that means?

As I undertsand it, "richer" is because the yolks are larger than the chicken eggs in comparison. If your baking the larger yolk is preferred.

Tyrus, you are so right. The yolk is noticeably larger than a either the turkey or chicken egg. The shell is quite transparent and very smooth, when the egg is cracked the white of the egg was crystal clear, a beautiful sight.
