Egg Taste Testing

I have to admit, I’m not the biggest scrambled eggs fan. However, when our friends sent us these gorgeous organic eggs, I couldn’t resist cooking them up for a taste.

For tips on making the best scrambled eggs, take a look at Eva’s post, How to Perfect Scrambled Eggs

These aren’t just your average chicken eggs either. Besides being beautiful, they are also different kinds. The large speckled ones are turkey eggs, the narrowly shaped white ones are duck eggs, and the tiny tan ones are guinea hen eggs.

Here is our opinion on the eggs!

Turkey: 

These eggs tasted very similar to chicken eggs. They were slightly richer, but the biggest difference was the size. Three turkey eggs produced much more than three chicken eggs, not to mention they were much prettier than the usual white store bought variation.

Duck:

The duck eggs were much richer and creamier than chicken eggs. They have large yolks and are all together pretty big eggs. Almost bigger than the turkey eggs, they nearly filled the whisking bowl!

Guinea:

The guinea eggs were definitely my favorite. They have incredibly thick shells, and I had to ram them at the counter to get them cracked. After that very strenuous process, I was rewarded with three beautiful egg yokes- and not much else. There was very little egg white, so not the best egg to make meringue with. However, for scrambled eggs, they were perfect. It was so creamy and rich, it didn’t even need much seasoning!

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my post on the sitting/rising test that gives clues to how long you will live. Loved this post on eggs! In an earlier incarnation, I worked on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and covered the shell egg futures market, so I have a natural affection for eggs. I started eating them regularly when I was writing about them. Must confess I envy your getting to eat duck eggs. Sound delicious.
