    I've only used them in cakes. They do taste imo a bit yukky as is.
    Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia.

    I don't actually fancy them boiled or scrambled and they are only small, smaller than hen's eggs

    I had my first duck eggs on sunday - albeit they were large ones. I had them soft poached on toast. I am a convert - they were the best ever

    Your making me feel squeamish. Stop it.
    Soft eggs are so gross, I like them rock hard. No gooey bits at all.

    I love preserved duck eggs....I make up a brine solution and leave the duck eggs in it for 5 weeks. Drain, rinse and store in cool place. Boil for 10 mins whenever I fancy one; they (obviously!) take on a 'salty' taste so needs to be eaten with somethind eg rice etc. The whites have a delicate salty flavour and the yolks are wonderfully rich. I've tried this method with chicken's and quail's eggs but it doesn't seem to work for some reason.
    I have the mind of a criminal genius. I keep it in the freezer next to Mother....

    did i read here somewhere that you have to be careful with duckeggs as they are very porous and muck and stuff can get through the shell ?

    Yes. You did. I'm not quite sure which thread, but it was a recent one. Maybe in the question asked by MSE Sue about ducks and goats and things.

    Edit: yep, second post.

    What about Lemon Curd or Quiche? Have no idea what either would be like, but worth a try.

    i have chickens and ducks, and i must admit i love duck eggs for cooking cakes, they give the cake a much richer texture. i have also hard boiled them, and pickled them to use them in the winter....cant wait for my ones to start laying again now.........happy cooking.....
