Can you guess? Which is the chicken, which is the duck?
Now here I am with 4 duck eggs and no idea what to do with them. Off to the internet I go!
Here's what I found out:
"the yolks of duck eggs have more fat and the whites more protein than those of chicken eggs, and you need to take these differences into account when cooking. Somewhat gentler cooking is the key."
"You can do anything with a duck egg that you do with a chicken egg. Duck eggs are less watery than chicken eggs, so overcooking them can render them rubbery. Duck eggs are excellent for baking. Due to their content, duck eggs make cakes rise high and stay that way, while their high fat content gives baked goods a richer taste and color. The size difference between duck eggs and chicken eggs should be taken into account. Some bakers use 1 duck egg for every 2 chicken eggs called for. Duck egg whites are harder to whip than the chicken variety. Adding a little acid, in the form of lemon juice, will help whip them into shape."
