UPDATE!!!!! Check out my new post on an even better method for ‘boiling’ your eggs. If you’ve been frustrating trying to boil fresh eggs in the past (can we say chunks of egg whites stuck to shells? Yes.) Then check out this new post for a REAL FOOLPROOF method that results in easily peeled eggs, even the super fresh ones! ———>>> STEAMED EGGS
Firm, protein packed whites. Rich, creamy, BIG yolks. DUCK EGGS make the BEST egg salad and devilled eggs, but first you must boil the perfect egg! Because duck eggs are so much larger than chicken eggs, the timing is essential to get a fully cooked yolk. I find that duck eggs peel much more easily than chicken eggs, but you still want to start your egg-boiling adventure by choosing the least fresh of your fresh eggs, preferably at least 1 week old.
Birdsong Farm ducks are free-ranged within safe electrified netting pens that are moved monthly which ensures they have fresh grass at all times plus plenty of worms, grubs and garden extras. Buy our eggs fresh from the farm most days or request local delivery.
Duck egg shells are quite thick, so expect your fingers to experience a bit of poking as you peel (i’ve even cut my thumbs when peeling a batch of 3 dozen eggs!) but once you get the shell started it peels off in large sheets, a bit like an orange. I think peeling duck eggs is fun!
