Duck Eggs
0

14 posts in this topic

So one of my students offered me fresh duck eggs - for $2 a dozen!! I will be getting them next week.

 

When I was a kid my Grandma had ducks and gave me some eggs. I remember the yolks were rich and heavenly, but the whites were a kind of transluscent gray color and were kind of rubbery.

 

I know I can bake with them, although all I ever make is pancakes using King Arthur gluten-free flour. Is there anything different I need to do when making these pancakes with duck eggs? Less oil? More flour?

 

Also, if anyone has suggestions about cooking them in a pan, I'm all ears.

LOLZ - well, barty, i'm stumped!  i have never even eaten a duck egg much less cooked them :) 

 

^_^  one time i saw somebody on a cooking show put quail eggs into ravioli.  no, they were quail egg *yolks* - boiled the ravioli till it was cooked and the yolk was still raw.  i was impressed!

I used duck eggs pretty much the same as chicken eggs when I had them.  I had mostly chicken eggs and poached them together.  I also used them in baked goods.  They are somewhat larger than chicken eggs; I ignored this fact.  I am not sure if you would need to alter your recipes if you used 100% duck eggs.

How cool....I used to make eggs in cupcake form -- just mix them up and add little chunks of ham, bacon, green onions or other veggies and/or shredded cheese and bake....they freeze well for future use.  Can't remember cooking time, but can look it up for you.

 

Sure it would work well for this because you mix up as much or little as you want so the size of egg won't matter.

 

Very cool thread :)

Barty, my sweet....you know I cannot resist the challenge of finding information and doing a little research, :) so your duck egg question sent me looking.... . (my first thought was "ask Barbara". She's my farmer friend in CA, but I realized she raises chickens, so I am not sure if she ever ate the duck's eggs. I think she just kept the duck, suitably  named "Quacky"... as a pet...... )

 

Here is an interesting article for you. Seems to me they are interchangebale with chicken eggs in baking and cooking,  but I see the cholesterol level is a good deal higher.  This author suggests making duck egg omelets with one egg  (yolk and white) plus two whites to cut back on the cholesterol intake.

Damn the cholesterol, full yolks ahead! (Sorry.) I read a bunch of articles before posting and a lot of them suggested poaching them. I LOVE poached eggs, so I guess I'll try that first, but I'll probably end up cooking them in every way possible.

 

Now, I'm wondering about those cream puffs. I'll have to try them with some of that King Arthur gluten-free flour.

 

Thanks!

:lol: never say sorry for making a funny! lol

 

I saw those cream puffs but I said "look away, Irish...your thighs do not need them!"

 

Make them and let me know how they turn out?  ^_^

They sound simple enough to make. And I won't be putting cream or chocolate in them. I'm kind of weird that way - other than ice cream I've never been all that fond of sweets. I always had my fry dough plain when I went to the fair. I always ate my pancakes without syrup. And I will use these as another bread-type substitute.

Duck eggs behave pretty much the same way as chicken eggs, when fried

in a pan the whites can be more rubbery-feeling. The yolks are much bigger,

and therefore good for those of us who like their yolks runny! When baking,

if the eggs are VERY big, you may need to add a touch more flour, but that's it.

And HOLY CRAP $2 A DOZEN I HATE YOU!

Duck eggs are awesome! They have a lot more B12 than chicken eggs. My neighbor raises chickens and a duck and often would put 1-2 duck eggs in every dozen eggs that I got from her. :)

We used to have ducks and chickens. The ducks were much more consistent egg layers. I didn't care for the eggs straight up. As mentioned, the whites have a rubbery texture compared to chicken eggs. But I thought they were wonderful in baking. Back in those days I baked with wheat flour still. I have never used duck eggs with gluten free baking. I am confident they would be as good if not better!

Update- When fried in bacon grease the whites are much more tender. :ph34r:

    • Depression / anxiety issues
      G'day Chris and welcome to the forum. You have found what I think is the single best resource on the web for advice, support and understanding for this condition. There is so much info here it's difficult to know where to start, but that's what this thread is for, please check it out. I think I got the recommendation for 'Real life with Celiac Disease' by Dennis and Leffler there, I'll second that, there's a lot of very useful info in there which helps to answer a lot of your questions. May be useful for your partner also. Chapters are short and informative so you can dip in and out.  There will doubtless be more advice to come from others with more experience but there's a few things which occur. Firstly, 10 weeks is very early days. Your body has been under an assault for many, many years. Your immune system has been working overtime and like so many others you've only reached diagnosis after reaching a crisis point. You are now healing but it won't be instant and it won't be without ups and downs, speedier and slower phases.  Second, being strict on gluten is essential, but it's only one part of the puzzle. You also need to eat really healthily and try to heal your gut. As you remove gluten you may find that your body starts telling you that other foods are also an issue. Don't panic, it doesn't mean that will always be the case. But you need to approach the next 6 months as a period where you're giving your body the easiest ride possible. That may mean taking probiotics, bone broths or it could also mean avoiding dairy or other foods, at least until your body has had a chance to heal. If you think you may still be getting gluteny effects keeping a food diary, noting what you eat, when and how you feel would help to track down any further issues.  I too battled through the anxiety, had an all too brief moment of bliss as the diet kicked in, then faced a bumpier recovery period in the weeks that followed. It gets easier but it's still difficult for me from time to time. I tried to articulate some of this recently here, it's a long read but maybe some of it will strike a chord. It will get better and you will become better equipped to deal with it. If you're like me you'll find other things getting better over time that you would never have thought to connect to gluten. Now, I've been exceedlingly nice here and not mentioned the England Rugby drubbing but I can feel my self control beginning to slip. So I'll leave it there   Matt

      Thanks for the advice Irene. I will look into that book. I know I'm a long away from healed but I got my hopes up when I felt better in that first week, it's just constantly a battle. I am hoping and praying that I get better soon 
    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      Do you take digestive enzymes and probiotics? That may help. Have you met with a dietician for help figuring out how you're getting glutened?
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      You should read the book' Jennifer's Way" you might find her story similar.  You will find better health- but be patient- it's an up and down road and takes a long time! For me it's been 7-8 months and I'm not well but slowly improving I hope
    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      Hi Everyone I am new here and wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing the same thing I am.  I was diagnosed positive for celiac in 2/2016 via biopsy from an endoscopy.  I was negative for blood work because I self-eliminated gluten 9 months prior; so I guess I had not antibodies register in my lab work.  Prior to 2/2016 I was having symptoms for almost an entire year.  Despite cutting out grains in general for 9 months, I would have a gluten attack at least once a month.  I have had a history of sinus, bronchial infection.  I remember as young as 17 getting sick but I always bounced back and was active in sports and working out.  But in the past year I developed the following symptoms - Sudden desire to pass out, nausea, headaches, heart palpitation, crashing exhaustion as if I was recuperating from the flu, wheezing in my chest. I was bounced around to an allergist at this and was told I was asthmatic and I had food sensitivities to dairy, nuts, corn or corn derivatives (including corn syrup) and grains.  so I cut everything out!  Despite cutting everything out I was still have episodes at least monthly, possibly cross contamination.  In April 2015 I traveled to the Carribean for 2 weeks,  I became very ill with a urinary tract infection, stomach bug and severe back pain with constant fever.  I was treated with antibiotics (Bactrim) for 10 days which did clear up the situation. I came home and dismissed everything to a coincidence.  Six weeks later the GI distress woke me up in the middle of night.  The pain was so excruciating that when I sat on the toilet thinking I had to go, I almost past out from the pain.  I lay myself down on the floor until it subsided.  The next day I contacted my primary and was immediately seen.  She referred me to a GI specialist but the appointment was not until August.  Then 2 weeks before my GI appointment they called and rescheduled for late September.  I saw him and by then I was feeling better; no epsides for almost 2 months.  So we did nothing.... boy did I talk to soon.  Immediately after the appointment I had an attack.  These were the symptoms: Nausea, crashing fatigue (as if I was hit with the flu), diarrhea, dizziness,, loss of appetite,  lower back pain, specifically in the middle; intestinal discomfort and body aches which lasted 10 days!! and abruptly disappeared, thank God.
      . I had to wait to see the GI until 1/2016.  Once I saw him he did labs which were all normal.  He checked my liver, kidney, pancreas, blood count which was all normal.  He also scheduled the endo/colonoscopy for end of 1/2016.  Speeding forward in time....since the Endo/Colonscopy procedures, I had attacks January through March which last 7-10 days each time.  I finally had a break for 2 months and today as I type this I am on day 6 of another episode.  What I wanted to see if anyone has experience the following.  For me each episode is getting worse with the following symptoms: Nausea (horrible), back pain on the left side both in the rib cage (the front and back) at times this pain also gravitates toward my left hip.  I also get diarrhea, bloating, intestinal distress, crashing fatigue and loss of appetite.  What really hits me hard is the rib cage pain that is in the front and back on my left side.  I will be seeing the GI doctor in August; but I am hoping to see him sooner Any input in reference to symptoms is appreciated.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
