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:

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
       
    • Thank you. This is really helpful. I will call around next week.  I just want to heal! 
    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
