Duck Eggs: Add Richness To Breakfast

Like any amateur chef, I'm always looking for new, unknown, reclaimed, or forgotten food or ingredients. Duck eggs fit many of these descriptors.

Prized by bakers for their superior protein content and richness, duck eggs are almost never seen in grocery stores. Fortunately in San Francisco you don't have to keep your own ducks to acquire them. You can find them, if you're early enough on a Saturday morning, at Haney Egg Ranch at the Alemany Farmers' Market in flats of 20 for $12.

They're larger than most chicken eggs, similar in size to a “jumbo” chicken egg. They're off-white with a tan tint and a slight opalescence which creates the illusion of translucence.
