Exotic Meat Market offers fresh duck eggs for food.
Larger than a chicken egg and smaller than a goose egg, the duck egg is a tasty, healthy and versatile alternative. Scramble it. Poach it. Bake it in a cake. But before cracking that first shell, learn more about what makes the duck egg distinct.
The most obvious difference between the chicken egg and the duck egg is size; duck eggs are larger than chicken eggs. The shells of duck eggs are slightly tougher to crack. The tougher shell gives duck eggs a longer shelf life--about 6 weeks in the refrigerator. Inside, you'll find that the yoke is larger in proportion to the whites than that of a chicken egg. So, if you're a yoke lover, duck eggs could become a favorite.
You can do anything with a duck egg that you do with a chicken egg. Duck eggs are less watery than chicken eggs, so overcooking them can render them rubbery. Duck eggs are excellent for baking. Due to their high protein content, duck eggs make cakes rise high and stay that way, while their high fat content gives baked goods a richer taste and color. The size difference between duck eggs and chicken eggs should be taken into account. Some bakers use 1 duck egg for every 2 chicken eggs called for. Duck egg whites are harder to whip than the chicken variety. Adding a little acid, in the form of lemon juice, will help whip them into shape.
A duck egg contains about 130 calories; an extra large chicken egg contains about 80. Of the calories in a duck egg, about 86 are from fat, mostly monounsaturated fat.
