The Inside of the Eggs

inside of eggs.blog

Here is a comparison shot of the three eggs shown two posts ago. The big one is the goose egg, and is just over half a cup in volume. The two others are the chicken and duck, and together they make just under half a cup in volume.

Tomorrow I’ll post a picture of the omelette that I made with the goose egg – stay tuned! ;->

    I don’t know why but I’ve never been tempted to eat a duck egg and certainly not a goose egg. (I’m putting this mildly, here.) Can you explain the difference, if any, in taste, texture, etc. Why would I even want to eat anything but chicken eggs, uless of course I lived on a farm and raised other types of fowl. Is there a nutritional difference?

      I can’t taste any difference amongst the three types of eggs. The goose egg’s yolk was much firmer, and was hard to blend with the white to make the omelette.

      The duck eggs have three times the cholesterol, partially because they are bigger, but also inherently.

      I wouldn’t bother with the goose eggs, but I think the duck eggs make better pancakes, and they poach up much nicer. The cornbread seemed tastier, too, somehow, but I can’t really say how.

        Thanks for the comparison. I think as long as I can get fresh organic chicken eggs I’ll stick with them.

        Sounds like a good plan. I get both now. We like the way the duck eggs poach up, but chicken eggs are good enough for cooking and baking. So I’ll just plan to have both on hand. I have almost two dozen duck eggs, and six chicken eggs, so that should last a good long while.

        The goose egg was fun to play with, but I don’t see it becoming a staple in my kitchen.

    I thought maybe someone had given you a tour of their Casita, Escape, Scamp, or other fiberglass egg. 😀

    Loved seeing the different sized poultry eggs. I wonder if turkey eggs are as big as goose eggs.

  3. Interesting! I’m curious about the taste as well. 🙂

      I can’t really tell any difference at all in taste. Cornbread seems to be better, somehow, but not sure how to describe it. The goose egg’s yolk was very sturdy; hard to mix in with the white for the omelette, even with one of those swirly, bouncy whisk-y things.

    Just imagine to compare this to the egg of an ostrich or a quail, but they look yummy both of them. Regards Mitza

    I have never eaten goose egg omelette. Does it taste different or does it taste like a chicken egg? Maybe I should make myself an ostrich egg omelette for dinner…ha ha! Have a lovely week!
