eggs

Many, many years ago I cooked a goose egg for Bobby. Fried it, to be exact. And before it was done cooking, I was getting queasy. I couldn't bring myself to eat it. Fast forward many years, and we've lost all our male geese, meaning all our eggs are unfertilized. There's no point in incubating them, and the female geese will never be able to hatch them, no matter how hard they try. So what are we to do with all these eggs?

Thanks to google, I've learned that goose eggs are best scrambled or as an omelette. If used in baking, the ratio is 1 goose egg equals 2 large chicken eggs (I would have guessed 3), but since they are mostly yolk, a chicken egg or egg whites needs to be added to the mix or it will be heavier. So I scrambled one with a chicken egg the other morning. It didn't taste bad; actually tasted like a chicken egg; but I still had a hard time eating my whole part.


Comparison: before beating the goose egg and chicken egg together. 
So if any of you local readers are interested in eating goose eggs, let me know. I have about 8 that need a "home".
