Duck Eggs are Unique
What makes a duck egg so different from a chicken egg?
First off, size. A duck egg is about 1.5 times larger than a chicken egg, giving it more calories, fat, and protein. Duck eggs have a thicker shell, which makes them stay fresh longer. They are also richer and more structured, with more albumen (the protein in egg whites) and omega-3 fatty acids.
Do they taste like chicken eggs?
Not exactly. We would describe duck eggs as richer and creamier.
So can I use these eggs for hard-boiled or deviled eggs?
Definitely! Just substitute duck eggs for chicken eggs in your favorite hard-boiled or deviled uses.
How many eggs can I cook at once?
As many as your heart desires—or really, as many as you can comfortably fit in your pot. Cook a bunch and have them on hand in the fridge—they will last for about a week.
