Now there's something you don't eat every day...

Duck eggs have recently entered our lives! A friend of Mr. EA's from work and his wife (the friend's, not Mr EA's) have started keeping ducks and selling the eggs. So far we have scrambled them, hard-boiled them, and made creme brulee - all have worked out fine. They are a bit more viscous, and the yolks are much bigger than chicken eggs, but otherwise they are not as exotic as I would have thought. They taste a little richer than chicken eggs, but otherwise much the same.
I don't know if they are planning to market them commercially, as they are still getting the enterprise up and running. But if they are, I'll let you know!
